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