Davao’s Kadayawan Street Dance Tradition Goes to Hong Kong for Chinese New Year

Wazzup Pilipinas!

The Hong Kong Tourism Board invites you to celebrate the city’s biggest and most colorful festival at the Cathay Pacific International Chinese New Year Night Parade on January 28 at Tsim Sha Tsui. This highly received entertainment event, now on its 22nd edition, features a series of world-class performances including the famous street dance display of Davao’s Kadayawan festival.

The Kadayawan festival is a thanksgiving harvest festival, which showcases Davao’s rich culture, diversity and the unification of the province’s resident indigenous groups. The main highlight of the Kadayawan festival is the Indak-Indak Kadalanan or street dancing, which will be brought to Hong Kong as part of the line-up in this year’s Chinese New Year celebration with the theme, “Best Fortune. World Party.”

The festivity begins with a fun-filled, interactive street party, followed by a parade with spectacular floats and a wide variety of local and international performing talent, including marching bands, cheerleaders, dance troupes, and roving costumed characters.

Along with the Kadayawan street dance performance, some of the most talented groups from all over the world will be featured in the parade, including the acrobatic Wheelartistics Wuppertal from Germany, world class marching band Bluecoats Drum and Bugle Corps from the USA and dance group Giant Flowers and Butterflies from France plus many more. 

Welcome the new year like the locals do by visiting some of Hong Kong’s flower markets with their array of colorful blooms like aromatic orchids plus endless inventive offerings from the stallholders. And don’t miss out on the stunning fireworks display over Victoria Harbour between Central and Tsim Sha Tsui on January 29.

Welcome the Year of the Rooster in the grandest way ever, because the best celebrations of all are definitely in Hong Kong.
