Hala, bira! Viva, Santo Niño!

Ati-atihan Festival is held in Kalibo, Aklan in the western part of the Visayas every 2nd Sunday of January. It is one of the most popular, most fun and wildest celebrations in the Philippines. Hundreds and thousands of local and foreign visitors gather at the main streets of Kalibo to see the most colorful parade of the ati (natives), dancing and prancing around the plaza. Notice how colorful and unique the costumes are. Most of it were made from indigenous materials found in Aklan. Onlookers can't help but join in the fun and revelry, painting themselves with soot and dancing like there's no tomorrow.

The Ati-atihan is a feast honoring Sr. Santo Niño.
