… my husband, son and I are in Kalibo, Aklan, celebrating the Feast of Senor Santo Nino and the Ati-Atihan Festival! Viva, Senor Sto. Nino!
Thank you, dear Sto Nino, for all the blessings; may you continue to shower us all with more in 2011.
Welcome to the most popular, most fun, and the wildest celebrations in the whole of the Philippine islands. The air is electrifying, the sights are festive and awesome, and the loud sounds of percussion instruments pull you to the streets and do the sad-sad (street-dance) till you drop. This is the 2011 Ati-atihan Festival!
Ipagwa na ang kapa, kag mag-sad-sad sa plaza.
Hala bira! Pwera pasma!
The pictures above were taken by me in the previous Ati-atihan festival. New pictures will follow soon.
