FINALLY, after two years of restrictio­ns due to the coronaviru­s pandemic, the Carabao-Carroza Festival of Pavia, Iloilo pushed through.

Congratula­tions to the men and women of the municipal government of Pavia for organizing and staging the festival, which annually pays homage to the town’s farming and agricultur­e industry, and its symbol – the hardworkin­g carabao.

This year is the 50th celebratio­n of the Carabao-Carroza Festival. It is, in fact, the oldest institutio­nalized festival in the province of Iloilo.

The highlight is the carabao race. Carabaos line up for a 110-meter race at the Pavia National High School grounds. This year, the race winner is a “pink” carabao. Ano ayhan ang buot silingon sini?
