Pintados De Pasi

The Pintados De Pasi Festival held every 3rd week of March is perhaps one of the best known and established festivals of the Province of Iloilo that have evolved through the years. It has played a big part in the lives of most Passinhons. Performers adorned in traditional tattoo with elaborate geometrical designs in their body, including their arms, legs, and torso dramatizes stories in which the town’s ancestral beings laid down every feature of the area, especially their way of life.

Numerous special events are enjoyed during this week-long celebration. It includes Garden Show and Food Festival, the Karosa Parada and Carabao-Painting Contest; the Grand Coronation Night for the Search for Binibining Pintados; Sinadysa sa Suba and the Pinta Lawas Contest, and the much awaited Tribe Competition.
