"Pasagad dressing, is another form of art where a thing called Pasagad is being transformed into a wonderful piece."
What is pasagad? Pasagad is that thing that these carabaos usually pull at the field sometimes used to carry farm products.
Ok, this time these so-called pasagad/s are not dirty because they serve as an attraction that coincide with another art festival called the Karbo Festival wherein Carabaos become living canvasses under one mother festival called Viva Vigan Festival of the Arts. It branched out to several sub-festivals so don't get confused.
|This is not yet the pasagad just so you know :p It is still the carabao because I want a pleasing opening photo, if ever this one really looks pleasing :p|
It happened in the middle of a historic street called Nueva Segovia. Along this street is a line of massive ancestral house-palace (turned to a college, then shopping center, irkkk), the Plaza Salcedo (the oldest of its kind north of Manila), the Arzobizpado Nueva Segovia, the only surviving 18th century archbishop palace in the Philippines, the Legion of Mary House (where some religious people stay) and a portion of the Vigan Cathedral.
Just a warning, I am running out of words to say and this post will be overdone with photos.
|Now that's the pasagad. In case you don't know :p|
|Look how cool lolo and lola are! Kagat dila si Lolo!|
|At may Plate number pa! Ayus!|
|I forgot to say I'm against same-sex marriage :p|
|Riding on a "pulled" pasagad before the public.|
|And once again it is a pasagad parade, not a float parade :p|
|The shy-type Carabao. Hey! You're a star now!|
|Proud Farmer. Kudos Manong!|
|Pedicure: More Fun in the Philippines|
|A crowd of Carabaos. But some of them are not real carabaos, lol.|

Now, if overdoing a travel blog with non-professional casual blogger-type photos like this is a crime, then put me now to JAIL! But please before doing that don't forget to share and like this post to your networks to spread this blogging crime :)
So what's next? Let's see the Parade of these colorful carabaos with their colorful pasagad. And look whose capturing below. Yes that's the fellow travel blogger EAZY Traveler who loves these carabaos that much.
This un-watermarked photo below serves as a teaser for the next post as the carabaos pass in front the majestic and historical Vigan Cathedral.
Vigan is located there. Just in case you don't know :) Hope to see you at our next post. I'm sure it will be another crime. Bye! :p
