Pamulinawen Festival : Travel


When Jingjing and I scheduled our trip to Vigan (via Laoag), we didn't even realize that we were landing in this charming city a day before the Pamulinawen Festival. It was CBB who told us about it, so instead of heading straight to Vigan, we decided to stay in Laoag and join the festivities.


Pamulinawen Festival is the annual fiesta of Laoag City in honor of St. William the Hermit. It is celebrated every 10th of February with concerts, float competition, street pageantry (dancing, if you will), and a lot more. The city was swarming with people, vendors, and everything that was colorful and happy.


Everyone flocked infront of the Capitol that day to watch the dance parades. Jingjing and I were able to squeeze ourselves through all these people and made our way infront. We had an awesome view and I was able to take pictures.

Sharing some photos. Enjoy! And when you have the chance, do visit Laoag.

Am I wrong to observe that the festivals seems to be looking all the same (except maybe for the Moriones, which I have not seen much in pictures lately)?

I like how your pictures are so light, bright and colorful.

You are actually right, Tita! When I was at the Pamulinawen, I thought to myself that it felt so much like being in the Sinulog. I guess, it all stem from the same culture, that's why. :)

Still, it was a beautiful celebration. :)

About the pictures, thank you!
