    This is the Calesa Parade during The Vigan Binatbatan Festival of the Arts-May 1-4, 2014. For many years now, Calesa Parade became the main attraction of the Viva Vigan Festival of the Arts. It features around 100 calesa (horse-drawn vehicle) decorated with indigenous materials in accordance to the theme of the Viva Vigan. Viva Vigan’s week-long festivities have both religious and secular importance. It starts on the 1st of May, when the whole country celebrates Labor Day and Vigan remembers its own Isabelo de los Reyes, who founded the country’s first federation of labor. The catholic faithful also remembers on this day St. Joseph, patron saint of workers.
