Cotabato's Halad Festival
It is known among many tourists, and that's why it was mentioned in one of Department of Tourism's materials for their latest campaign, that in the Philippines there are many fiestas and festivals all year round.
Some are as big as Sinulog of Cebu or The Flower Festival of Baguio but many are staged in a smaller scale but still imbibe the same positive energy as the grand ones. One of which is Halad (offering) of Cotabato. Here are some snapshots from this year's celebration.
