Puhag Festival 2018 – Street Dancing and Showdown
The street dancing and the showdown of the Puhag Festival was held at the streets of Valencia and at the town plaza, respectively. The Puhag Festival 2018 was organized by the Tourism Office of Valencia headed by Albert Tubal. This year’s festival has only four participating school groups. Despite not being plenty in number, the performance of each group was spot on.
The streets were indeed paraded with talent and laughter as each group made their dance with a touch of comedy and butt wiggling from the bees. Everything started on time and it was just a great event!
