Sunday is always a good day for bargain hunters, more so this March with the Araw ng Davao festivities in the air.  On Sunday evenings, San Pedro Street transforms into a festive delight for “ukay” shoppers as a sea of humanity crams the main street and turns it into a veritable night market extravaganza.

This month of March, though, it’s a daily happening, causing more traffic, but the people don’t seem to mind. 🙂
