The City Government of Davao in partnership with Smart Communications is organizing the first Torotot Festival. Torotot which means toy horn in Filipino and is used for joyful occasions and celebrations will be the centerpiece of the Davao-only event initiated by telecom giant Smart Communications.

Torotot Festival will be a unique and exhilarating spectacle of lights and sounds, where people armed with torotots will greet the New Year with fanfare and noise.

The event will also be aiming for the Guinness World Record for number of toy horn blowers, the current record to beat is 6,900 in Japan, the organizers are expecting 10,000 people. Due to Guinness World Record requirements they are looking for confined areas in downtown Davao which would be accessible to people.

Davao City is one of the strictest local government unit in enforcing firecracker ban in the country. The city is well known for its tranquility during New Year’s eve in contrast to other localities in the country where residents celebrate with firecrackers and pyrotechnics.
