The Davao City government and Smart Prepaid have teamed up to give Davaoeños the biggest and loudest Torotot Festival in celebration of New Year at the Roxas Avenue Freedom Park on December 31.
The Torotot Festival promotes a safe way to celebrate New Year – sans firecrackers, which have been banned in Davao City since 2002.
Last year, the Torotot Festival set the Guinness Book of World Record for the most number of people blowing party horns simultaneously, with a total of 7,568 individuals – trumping Japan’s record with 6,900 persons.

This year, Davaoeños can expect a much bigger and louder celebration with a New Year countdown show headlined by renowned vocalist Luke Mejares and top alternative rock band Color It Red. On the other hand, a rousing street party led by DJ Big will usher everyone into 2015 full of positive vibes and energy.
The celebration starts at 5 p.m., with the city’s best dancers dishing out their best moves for the Inter-barangay Hip Hop Dance Contest.
Meanwhile, all festivalgoers will have a chance to win hundreds of prizes in on-stage games and fun contests such as the search for the Most Creative Torotot Contest and the Most Creative Torotot-inspired Costumes.
By simply loading up their mobile number via designated agents, new and existing Smart Prepaid subscribers may enjoy the Torotot Festival show and get a chance to win exciting raffle prizes, take home premium items including a free Torotot, as well as participate in the activities at Smart Prepaid booths.
