Bitu-on han Leyte Kasadyaan 2009 candidates
Fiestas in the Philippines are never complete without a beauty contest or some kind of search or competition along similar lines. And Tacloban Fiesta is not wanting of this.
In fact, there are three… oops …five (gasp! let me count them again…) such competitions: Miss Pintados, Miss Tacloban, Bitu-on han Leyte Kasadyaan, Ginoong Leyte Kasadyaan and, last but not the least, Little Miss Tacloban.
The Search for the Bitu-on han Leyte Kasadyaan, however, is not a beauty contest. Organizers dub it as “The Search for the Best Female Lead Dancer” of the participating contingents in the Leyte Pintados-Kasadyaan Festival set for June 27, 2009.
The pageant for the Bitu-on han Leyte Kasadyaan happens tonight at the Kasadyaan Festival Park at 7PM.
