Aliwan Fiesta is one of the grandest festival in the country held annually in Pasay City, Manila, it is somehow considered the battle field of festival champions from different regions of the country with different visions . Festivals compete and perform in a one spectacular day and one center stage to bid for the one-million pesos.
