Iloilo City was filled with rhythm and colors as eight competing school-based Ati Tribes lit streets up at the Dinagyang Tribes Competition 2024.

During the opening salvo of one of the highly anticipated festivals in the Philippines, Iloilo City mayor Jerry Treñas said that the monetary award, P25 million worth of school projects, raised the enthusiasm of the "tribe warriors" in a celebration of the city's colorful culture and strong religious devotion to Señor Santo Niño.

"Without [a] doubt, Dinagyang is the festival to beat. As a three-time Best Tourism Event in the country, it has been known on the national and global stage, making Dinagyang one of the most highly anticipated events for visitors and tourists," the mayor said.

The eight participating tribes entered the competition in four different judging locations: Freedom Grandstand, Mabini-Delgado, Quezon-Ledesma, and Iloilo Provincial Capitol.

Among the participants are Tribu Ilonganon (Jalandoni Memorial National High School), Tribu Mandu-riyaw (Mandurriao NHS), Tribu Paghidaet (La Paz NHS), Tribu Pan-ay (Fort San Pedro NHS), Tribu Salognon (Jaro NHS), Tribu Sigabong (Ramon Avanceña NHS), Tribu Silak (Iloilo City NHS), and Tribu Taga-Baryo (Bo. Obrero NHS).
