The Ati-Atihan festival is celebrated widely in various parts of the Philippines every 2nd and 3rd of January. This celebration to honor Sto Niño (baby Jesus) is more popular in Kalibo Aklan. But there are lesser known places that do practice the Ati-atihan like Barotuan in El Nido Palawan, home from migrants coming from Aklan. I wrote about the Barotuan Ati-Atihan Festival at En Route extensively. Here, I’m just sharing out takes from the post, particularly some of my favorite Ati-atihan portraits from that day.
