Bago's Cinco de Novembre 2011

I was invited to judge, Bago City's Cinco de Novembre street parade 2011. There were two parts of the street parade to be judged, The street performance where-in the performers reenact the scene what happen during November 5 1898, and the look of the "canon". Authenticity was a huge percentage on the score sheets.

The Philippines is known for "People Power" the bloodless revolution that happen in 1986, But a few people know that the first bloodless revolt happen centuries ago. November 5, 1898 to be exact, Technically the first bloodless revolution happen centuries ago, in Negros island...
