Faces and Colors of the Ragrag-o Festival Dance Parade of Ilocos Norte 2010

The on-going 192nd foundation anniversary of the province of Ilocos Norte in the Philippines is celebrated with the Ragrag-o Festival. On February 4, 2010, a dance parade took center stage where all the festivals of the different municipalities of the province were showcased.

Ilocos Norte is a unique mix of several ethnic communities, but predominantly Ilocano.

The participants at the dance parade were school children and several grown-ups. Some showed signs of near exhaustion, but they still managed to entertain the big crowd of locals and tourists waiting on the main streets of Laoag City.

    • @ Dave: I really can’t answer your question. I’m just a plain citizen who happens to blog about my beloved Ilocos. I had the chance to take photos of the Ragrag-o street parade, so I shared them. I didn’t get to attend the other festivities, and I’m not aware of the contest results. Maybe you can inquire at the IN Provincial Tourism Office, Dave. Thanks, anyway, for reading.

  1. This is cool. I guess the first and 2nd pictures were the participants from Dumalneg or Adams. I missed my townmates in Dumalneg. Thank you for taking and posting pictures.
