The town's famous Kneeling Carabao Festival last Thursday drew a record number of foreign and local tourists who cherred the parade of 19 carabaos, representing the town's 19 barangays, each pulling a colorful kareta (cart) loaded with agricultural produce of the town.
Some 400 to 500 other carabaos accompanied by marching bands followed behind as they paid homage to the town's patron saint, San Isidro Labrador.
The carabaos, cleaned and dressed up for the parade, passed in front of the church, where they knelt as a priest blessed the farm animals and their owners.
