Balintawakan Festival - Capiz Events

Balintawakan Festival

May 15 | Pontevedra, Capiz


Balintawakan is a simple gathering, mostly of senior citizens of pontevedra, Capiz who are sentimentally bound together to an unwritten commitment to preserve a simple tradition which began long ago and was only interrupted by World War II. Every December 31 people hold a Binayle at the town's public market. Its highlight is the search for Miss Balintawakan as the Festival Queen. The event is capped by a Rigodon de Honor. The Filipino costume called Balintaw is the official attire of the womenfolk participating in the affair.
