PENAFRANCIA VIVA LA VIRGEN
3rd week of September/ Naga City
The feast of "Penafrancia Viva la Virgen" is Bicol Region's biggest celebration that combines religion with culture and tradition, packing it all in a 9-day fiesta of biblical proportions. Stay until sundown for stirring climax: the fluvial parade as it make its way down the river, surrounded by a sea of glowing candles - a fitting end of this truly spiritual occasion.
