The festivities include Trade Fair Exhibit, Nightly Cultural Presentations, Culinary Contest, Search for Binibining Calauan, Grand Float Parade and Mardigras Street Dancing.  Trade Fair Exhibit features the town’s local products, most of them products made out of pineapple such as delicacies and the pinya cloth- textile wove from pinya leaves and is the cloth used for the Philippine’s native attire, the barong. Nightly Cultural presentations showcase talents of the youth as they belted out songs and present dance numbers. The Culinary Contest is a cookfest wherein original recipes’ main ingredient is the pinya. The celebration will not be complete without the float parade, with beautiful floats representing each of the town’s barangay, and the much awaited Mardigras Street Dancing Competition with different schools competing with the students wearing colorful costumes.Source:MSC Communication Technologies, Inc.
