“In honor of rice”
This festival couldn’t have come at a more opportune time, now that the country is in the throes of a crisis involving our staple food.
A festival which is held once every three years, the Imbayah Festival held this year on April 15-17. This years’ Imbayah featured Imbayah Ritual, Cultural Performances, Agro-industrial Fair, Backstrap Weaving, Wood Carving Demonstration and the ever popular Wooden Scooter Race.
Here are a few images from the scooter races taken by our good friend Jake Verzosa.
