The Araw ng Dabaw is a month-long celebration, the Vice President said in her post, showcasing the various effigies, masquerades, and floats created by Davaoeños.
She also took numerous photos with the participants.
A self-proclaimed proud Davaoeña, Duterte was mayor of the city before running for vice president.
In her Facebook post, she shared about thanking her fellow Davaoeños for their support to the local government there.
