When many areas across the world are enjoying fireworks display, In Davao City people puff their torotot during the New Years Eve. Thousands of Dabawenyos flocked to Roxas Avenue to celebrate and witness the much awaited torotot festival. Mayor Rodrigo Duterte himself, together with Mr. Art Boncato of City Tourism, led the countdown to celebrate the changing of the year. 

Aside from blowing of torotot, the yearly festival highlights the Torotot Making Contest. Many dabawenyos created unique and Pinoy inspired torotot.

The city government of Davao, in partnership with Smart Communications, created this event to promote firecracker ban in the city. For more than a decade now, Davao City is enjoying zero casualties in line with firecracker related incident. Many LGU around the Philippines are adopting the ordinance being imposed in this city.
