Philippines: Pack your bags for Ati-Atihan
Get ready for the Filipino version of Mardi Gras
Music, dance and feasting are just some of the things in store for fans of Mardi Gras—in the Philippines. Ati-Atihan is the Filipino version of the famous festival and it will be held on January 8, 2017 in Kalibo. The spectacular event takes place annually to honour Santo Nino—a representation of the baby Jesus. The festival is celebrated with traditional songs and dances, and people in colourful attires throng the streets for a day of merrymaking. Make sure you're there this January!
