  1. FYI sir, Hilongos is still a part of Leyte and not Southern Leyte…

  2. Oops, sorry I erred 😦 Correction done. I took the word of a friend seated beside me while I was uploading…hehe

  3. Very artistic….. magkarit man nga tanan.. Thanks for posting. Now, we know what we missed. Do you have a video of the pintados festival? God bless you always.

  4. Sir, thanks for these brilliant photos. You really captured the full colors of the local festival. Hope you can post pics of the Sangyaw festival as well. Cheers!

  5. The costumes and choreography and production designs are all getting more colorful and sophisticated as each year passes. Thanks, Gerry, for posting the pictures. This all makes me wish I were there to witness the festival.

  6. WOW! WOW! WOW! The Festival has come a long way. My siblings had so much fun. Too bad my cousins were not able to see this. Late na hira umulpot ha Tacloban so an Sangyaw na la an ira nakit-an.Thanks so much for the photos. Looking forward to the rest.

  7. It’s awesome! Damo nga salamat ha imo. I’m homesick. I miss Tacloban very much. During our younger days, waray pa man sugad hiton nga selebrasyon. Hoping to see more photos…

  8. Mas OK pa tong Pintados-Kasadyaan compared to Sangyaw, dapat sumali na lang pala sa Sangyaw yung ibang Leyte contingents para nadagdagan yung mga competitors….

    Belated Happy Fiesta, Mr. Ruiz!

  9. nice work! i’m based in manila and was informed you took pictures of my son during the festivities. can’t wait to see it posted! more power!

  18. Amazing presentation. Who is behind these artistic talents? If Mr. Pati Tan were still alive, I know he would be one of them. May he rest in peace. As for being active at the parade, I know my dad, Ray Heruela, would be there too. May he rest in peace also.
