Pintados-Kasadyaan

Pintados-Kasadyaan, starting June 29, 2016, is two merged festivals from two different provinces of the Philippines – Pintados Festival of Tacloban and Kasadyaan Festival of Leyte Province. The Pintados festival of Tacloban City is a Filipino festival with its own unique flavour. This Pintados festival recalls pre-Spanish history of the native Leytenos from wars, epics and folk religions. The most expected aspect of the Pintados festival are the festive dancers, painted from head to toe with designs that look like armour to resemble the tattooed warriors. The folk dances presented by the dancers portray the many traditions that flourished before the Spaniards came. Aside from the folk dances, is the much likely parade, which crisscrosses the avenues of Tacloban city. The festival concludes in merrymaking with a signature traditional Filipino fiesta.
