Municipality of Pavia
Every 30th of October
For the town the Pavia, the celebration of Halloween comes with lots of mystery and ghostly attractions.
An excellent choice of festivity, the Tigkaralag Festival locally known as Pangagaluwa or Soul-ing showcases the creativity and talents of the different participating groups coming from the town’s 18 barangays. The Halloween dance competition is the centerpiece of the celebration.
The festival opens with a parade at 5:30 p.m. with a lot of screams. If you like a good scare there is the spectacularly spooky Halloween costume and make-up competition. Pretty awesome for such a small town, costumed characters like the Headless Priest, zombies, the evil nun, werewolves, and ghosts bring this historically themed spot to life.
