d'dalaylay festival (jalajala, rizal)

Jalajala, Rizal celebrated the feast day of its patron saint, St. Michael the Archangel, last September 29. The day’s highlight, the D’Dalaylay Festival featured street dances participated by the people of Jalajala from its different barangay and schools in colorful, artistic and ingenious costumes.

With the onslaught of typhoon “Ondoy” in Luzon, particularly in the province of Rizal as the hardest hit area, still fresh in the minds of the people of Jalajala, we still celebrated the feast day of St. Michael as a way of thanking the Lord, through our patron saint, for sparing our town from the ravages of the destructive typhoon. Compared to the other Rizal towns, Jalajala doesn’t suffered the same fate the towns of Cainta and most especially, our neighbor towns of Pililla and Tanay, experienced. It didn’t even rain last September 29th.

In case you were wondering why we celebrate the feast day on September 29 and no longer in May 8, I’ve already told you about it HERE. Click the link in case you missed it.

All of Jalajala’s barangay and schools like the JaNa High (Jalajala National High School), SMPS and Greenfield Montessori School showcased their dances and costumes. Check out some of the pictures here, then click the Flickr link HERE.
