Today, April 8, is the official opening of the Panaad sa Negros Festival and we already made the rounds. The 19 towns and 13 cities of Negros Occidental have exhibits at the festival.
This photo was taken at the exhibit of my wife’s hometown in Negros Occidental. Singkamas is also referred to a jicama and Mexican turnip.
The first day of the Panaad Festival features the local fruits, vegetables and livestock. By sundown, the Festival will be in full swing with the pulsating beat of music.
A prize pig! Unique coloring.
The carabao is the National Animal of the Philippines. Locals also refer to the carabao as a buffalo and foreigners often refer to them as water buffalo.
A prize goat! This is not your typical local goat but what is referred to as a hybrid, of Nubian stock.
The Brahman Cattle on exhibit today are from Sagay City.
It is lunch time! A festival is never complete without lechon baboy, which is roast pig.
This is my first post about Panaad Festival 2013 and we still have six more days of festival to go. More later!
