Buyogan Festival joining the Pintados-Kasadyaan festival

The Pintados Festival is a cultural-religious celebration in Tacloban based on the body-painting traditions of the ancient tattooed "pintados" warriors.[1] In 1986, the Pintados Foundation, Inc. was formed by the people of Tacloban to organize this festival in honor of Sr. Santo Niño.[2] Years later, it was merged with the Kasadyaan Festival which is always held on June 29.[3]
