In many events and celebrations in the Philippines, it has been a personal note that three things are always present no matter the situation. One is the church as most feast had a patron saint or that they require the Church for overseeing the events as organizers or as participants. Two is that politics is never far away, either full blown in the open or subtly in the background but highly visible as can be seen with these support Gloria T-shirt during the 2004 presidential elections worn by the paraders. Lastly is the love for pagentry, there are so many festivals, so many celebrations, so many fiesta that I lost count of how many i attended or saw in my little corner of Bolinao. Well here is a peek at a pagent during the Viva Vigan Festival, Vigan City, Philippines, 2004.
