Parayaw, means to boast in the waray language. If a person is "naparayaw" it mean a person is doin a conscious act to boast or brag about something. Last year during the fiesta month long celebration Parayawan opened the reveling taclobanons. Young and old alike come to the venue to watch the nightly shows, live band,stand up comedians, and so much of activities to keep the people awake till the wee hours of the morning. For this years celebration Parayawan has new location now on the balyuan grounds just right across the city legislative building. If you would see it now the location is more bigger compared to the previous location last year that was at the Tacloban City astodome ground. Nightly entertainment every night ranging from guest band locally to top hit band from around the Philippines. You would love the food stalls that scatters around the place. Locals that just came out from a busy day at work would come to Parayawan even on a weekday. The scene now has change if you would be comparing it 5 years ago. The city is even more adapting to the night life culture so much so during these time of the year the Pintados fiestival.
