Colors, beer, dance, and drums.
My first Ati-atihan Festival experience and it was indeed the mother of all festivals! It was tons of crazy, alcohol-fueled merry makers, eardrums-busting drum beats, and colorful energetic men and women in masks and costumes!
We really know how to have fun. And the overwhelming number of foreign people that I saw, they came in prepared with their best crazy antics, as well.
