VDFS, the kick-off party

Everybody was excited. They had every reason to be. The key players of the Visit Davao Fun Sale gathered at the seaside tent of the Waterfront Hotel for the kick-off party. On the fourth year run of DVFS, 2017 promises to be action-packed and more thrilling for the Davao region.
