I was very fortunate enough to witness the Dinagyang Ati Tribe Competition earlier today and of course the Kasadyahan yesterday. I would like to congratulate the tribes for displaying their talents awesomely. I would also like to congratulate the Iloilo Dinagyang Foundation Inc. (IDFI) for a job well done! Winners will be announced later tonight and I will post them here tomorrow. And I heard that the winner of the Dinagyang Ati Competition is going to New York! Nice!
