Every 3rd of May
The Carabao-Carroza Festival, considered as the province’s oldest that has evolved into a ritualistic occasion combining the colorful and enjoyable atmosphere of deeply-rooted events of parade and race annually observed as part of the towns’ Municipal Fiesta celebration.
The celebration opens with a parade of 18 well-embellished carrozas with its 18 lovely muses and supported by their respective barangays officials and supporters wearing color-coded shirts. The parade starts in Barangay Ungka-l passing the poblacion area and finishes at the grandstand of Pavia National High School.
The second part of the celebration begins as Carabaos compete in friendly 100-meter races in categories with and without their carrozas at the football ground of Pavia National High School.
