    MUD PEOPLE FESTIVAL

     

    It was taken in Aliaga, Nueva Ecija, Philippines last June 24, 2015 during the Taong Putik (Mud People) Festival. Devotees soaked in mud and covered with dried banana leaves join the annual Taong Putik Festival in celebration of the Feast of Saint John the Baptist. The Taong Putik (mud people) will ask for alms and candles from the people. Candles will be offered in the church at the 7:00 A.M. mass. Devotees are also called as “San Juan” or “Nag-sa-San Juan” by the folks of Aliaga because of their effort to imitate Saint John the Baptist. A special mass follows, then a procession.
