It was co-incidental that coming from Baguio City, I saw an event in San Fernando City about to happen. I dropped by and witnessed this Buyboy Festival.
The province produced primarily buyboy, walis tambo or brooms. So they came up with the idea of celebrating Buyboy Festival in celebration of the 162nd founding anniversary of the said province. – Source: Text and Photos from: http://www.ilocandiatreasures.com See Photo Gallery…
