From around the world, people join Araw celeb

DABAWENYOS from different parts of the world took part in the celebration of the 75th Araw ng Dabaw last March 14-16 via the live streaming of events on the Sun.Star website.

Streamed over www.sunstar.com.ph and its micro site, specials.sunstar.com.ph/arawngdavao, were the Mutya ng Dabaw pageant, Sayawan sa Dan, Datu Bago Awards and, the highlight of the Charter Day celebration, the Parada Dabawenyo.

The live streaming resulted in an increase in the number of visits to the Sun.Star Davao website at www.sunstar.com.ph/davao and a rise in new visits by Dabawenyos formerly not aware of the local information provided by the site, said Mildred Galarpe of the Sun.Star Network Exchange (Sunnex) that runs Sun.Star’s online and mobile products.
