Festival is an integral part of Philippine culture. It displays celebration, devotion, passion, values and heritage. In the Philippines, there are numerous festivals being held every year. And fortunately, I’ve had the opportunity to witness some of those.
Seeing how grandeur and celebrated festivals that I’ve been made me interested to experience more of my country’s festivity. After attending a major festival few years’ back, I made a pact to myself that I must witness at least one each year. Two years had passed, and I had able to fulfill my promise. In fact, just September of this year, I’ve got the opportunity to experience another great festivity. I was able to see the most celebrated festivity in the Bicol Region, the Peñafrancia Festival.
