The Festival

Last weekend my mother inlaw asked me to come with them to watched the parade for welcoming autumn nearby. They have simple festival if i compare way back in my hometown Philippines as we celebrated the IBALONG FESTIVAL in Legazpi City. We called it before Ibalong fever when October came because most of us are so eager to watch the street dancing joining by Government employees and other students from public to private School. Wearing their own colorful custome and carried their own props, and dance with their own tune. Every Region in Islands of P.I has their own different festival.

We have also the fiesta in our own town it will a day for fun and food, music and dance, we celebrated fiestas from good time to bad time. We are abundant for the celebrations like these that we can proud of as a Filipino tradition honoring the day of our saint in every bario or Town.
The parade here is just walking and shouting hallo. They have their own band just to put sounds and music for the said event. Created their own small float decorated with flowers and plants. Its just really simple.
