Looking back at history, such as the reason why the Novo Ecijanos acts of heroism and huge bravery against the Spaniards, Nueva Ecija was sewn on our national flag as one of the guiding rays of the sun.

Taong Putik Festival

In addition, Nueva Ecija, the largest province in Central Luzon, is a historic province with colorful and remarkable festivals. It has diverse cultural traditions that became a significant part of the Novo Ecijanos culture and tradition.

The famous Taong Putik Festival is one of the most unique feast celebrations in the Philippines. Devotees in the town of Aliaga prepared ahead of time to join the procession as early as about 4:00 am.

Furthermore, it is a religious practice called “pag-sa-San Juan” held every 24th day of June in the town of Aliaga, Nueva Ecija. Specifically celebrated to honor their patron, Saint John the Baptist.

Then, devotees proceeded to the church for a thanksgiving mass followed by lighting of candles and procession.

According to accounts of older residents, local devotion to St. John the Baptist heightened during the Japanese occupation in 1944.

Devotees smeared themselves with mud and dressed in dry banana or coconut leaves to emulate Saint John the Baptist who hid himself as the chosen one to baptize Jesus Christ by wearing animal skin so that the people who wanted to kill him would not recognize him.

The festival drew thousands of visitors from other towns as well as nearby provinces to participate in the celebration.
