Binatbatan Festival of the Arts

We rushed to the narrow streets of Vigan to witness the Binatbatan Festival of the Arts parade. The festival is celebrated during the first week of the month of May to promote awareness and preserve the heritage site. 

 
For the past sixteen years, the festival of arts has been successful in drumming up attention for Vigan’s ancestral houses. With the help of national and local agencies, as well as media, arts and non-governmental supporters, the festival has also succeeded in promoting other aspects of Vigan. Its popularity has even benefited the whole tourism industry of the northern region, bringing in tens of thousands of local and foreign tourists curious to explore and have a “northern experience.” (source vigan.ph)
