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.
