Kalibo Ati-Atihan: Kabog Tribe

The above is one of my favorite shots from this year’s Kalibo Ati-Atihan Festival.  The guy’s from the tribe of Kabog, which in our dialect means a bat.  Since I was in high school, this tribe has been a consistent contender for first place due to their very colorful and creative costume though lately, I personally found them to be not innovative because the costume looks almost similar to or recycled from the previous years’.

Below are more photos of Kabog tribesmen.  Pardon the photo quality as during this festival, everyone is so into street-dancing and merry-making that it’s difficult to take perfect shots.

Experience Ati-Atihan, the Queen of Philippine festivals celebrated in honor of the Child Jesus, and Kalibo’s take on Brazil’s renowned Mardi Gras every third Sunday of January each year.
