  • Panagdadapun Festival Commemorating Quirinos History

    The province of Quirino rarely rings a bell in everyday conversation, but one week every September puts this province squarely in the eyes of the country: the Panagdadapun Festival.

    Panagdadapun is an Ilocano word which means assembly. It's a word that's so appropriate for the festival that it reverberates throughout the province of Quirino. Quririnians from all over the province gather to showcase what the province is all about in the week-long festivities.

    Highlights of the festival include the Street Dancing Showdown, Gitarock (Battle of the Bands), and the Search for Mr. and Ms. Quir ...

    Many of them organize harvest festivals, field days, mini trade expos in farming communities, and the like. Just like the Watermelon Expo staged by East-West Seed earlier last May in Brgy. Lusod, Maddela in Quirino province.

    Landingan Viewpoint is a part of Nagtipunan, the largest of the six municipalities of the province of Quiriono with a land area of 1,607.40 square kilometers, nearly half of the province itself and it is dubbed as the tourism capital of the province.

  • Siitan River And Bimmapor Rock Formation

    Location: Barangay Pongo, Nagtipunan, Quirino, Philippines

    This is my second day of my March 25-26, 2016 Quirino Trip. It was a long drive of more than one and half hours in a bright and clear morning going to this place from our accommodation base in the capital town of Cabarroguis. We've passed through dramatic rolling hills of an extremely scenic countryside. I was in complete awe as every inch of scenery is unfolded in my eyes.

    This time, we are heading to Bimmapor Rock Formation which completely showcases a spectacular geological landscape of massive limestone wall nestled along Sii ...
