Culture Trips

Festivals are one of the highlights of any country. In the Philippines alone, every place has its own festival/ fiesta to celebrate either the founding of their place, the "unique" products the town produces, or the patron saint of their town.
Here's the list of festivals I've joined:
Panagbenga Festival 2012 - Baguio City, Benguet  
Hot Air Balloon Fiesta 2012 - Clark Freeport Zone Angeles City, Pampanga
Fierce De Mayo in ASAP18 - ABS-CBN Studio 10, Quezon City

Visita Iglesia is the Spanish word for "church visit". This tradition was introduced by the Spanish to further strengthen the Catholic belief of the Filipinos. Today, Visita Iglesia is more likely connected to the Holy Week where faith and devotion by Filipinos could be clearly be seen.
