The Davao City Torotot Festival is celebrated on New Year's Eve. Torotot is a kind of party horn, popular in the Philippines. It's quite an experience to join in the orchestra of thousands of party horn blowers at the New Year's Countdown. The event claims to be the world's largest assembly of party blowers.

The Torotot Festival was first organized in 2014 to overcome the city’s pyrotechnic and firecracker prohibition. Usually, it starts with a parade of local people dressed in colourful costumes. Also, the festival includes a competition organized to identify the most creative and interesting Torotot. As a result, this New Year’s party is very noisy and joyful.
