Random Clicks: Fiesta!

Last Sunday, February 28th, our barangay celebrated the Feast of St. Augustine of Hippo. We always celebrate it every last Sunday of February. It is something that I personally look forward to each year because   I get to witness what Filipino hospitality and religious devotion is all about.

Young boys carry on their backs the statue of St. Augustine of Hippo and parade it around the whole barangay.

Elderlies danced on the streets following St. Augustine wearing the Philippines' traditional baro at saya. We call this tradition karakol. It is a colorful form of thanksgiving dance practiced in all parts of the Philippines for their patron saint. Anyone can participate, even if you do not know how to dance.
