The Taong Putik Festival is an annual feast held every 24 June. It is a religious festival celebrated by the locals and devotees to pay homage to San Juan Bautista on his feast day by wearing costumes patterned to his attire. The taong putik (Filipino term) soak themselves in mud and cover their body with dried banana leaves and visit houses or ask people for alms in a form of candle or money to buy candles which they offer for Saint John the Baptist to celebrate his feast day.
