KISAN Lu Lands and Barangay Kapitan Tomas Monteverde Sr. topped this year's Pamulak sa Kadayawan Float Parade in Davao City.

For traditional category, Kisan Lu won this year's Pamulak event, bringing home a cash prize of P500,000.

Consolation prize of P50,000 each was given to Concentrix Service Corp and the Zest-O Corp.

For the alternative category, Barangay Kapitan Tomas Monteverde won the first place with a cash prize of P150,000. Club Vee Dub Davao won P100,000 for the second place, and the Philippine Daily Inquirer won third with P75,000.

Hydie Jereos and San Roque Elementary School won worth P30,000 each for the consolation prize.

James Zimmerman, chair of the Committee of the Pamulak sa Kadayawan for this year, said that this year's event went well with floats becoming more impressive.

The best part was it finished before noon.

"Yes na-achieve naman, the only problem is there are groups who did not follow instructions. The instructions say that they can only bring 30 walking contingents and they brought 300 walking contingents," Zimmerman said.

This year, there were 13 contingents for the alternative category and 14 contingents for the traditional category.
