A karosa is a makeshift sled usually made of bamboo and pulled by a carabao or water buffalo. Nowadays, the lowly karosa has been transformed into grand sled carrying colorful displays. A parade of colorful karosas carrying beautiful maidens and the municipality’s bounty is the main event of the festival. Read More: http://localphilippines.com/events/karosahan-festival
