47th Celebration Araw ng Dabaw

Abstract / Excerpt:

A city that has survived through the centuries does not have to struggle for an identity, its own history breathes with myth and legend, its moss-covered churches and ancient battlements are mute but eloquent witnesses to the grandeur of its past and also, perhaps, to the f chaos of its present.

But to a young city, still in its formative years, like the City of Davao, it is not easy to at once attain the legendary status of Cebu, Manila or Zamboanga whose histories are replete with romance and legends about heroes, kings and rajahs, conquistadores and warrior-missionaries.
