‘Singkaban Festival’ gets rolling in Bulacan
CITY OF MALOLOS-At least 20 floats from different towns in Bulacan province took part in the annual “Singkaban” festival to celebrate the rich heritage of Bulakenyos.
Most of the floats were festooned with bamboo, the main material for the “singkaban,” and showcased the history, culture, arts and several other festivals for which each town is known.
“Singkaban” is a Filipino term for decorated bamboo arch, which is used as a welcome signage of a town, city or village in the country.
Gov. Daniel Fernando said he wants the weeklong celebration to be known as the “mother of all festivals” in Bulacan.
This year, the festival kicked off last Sunday and will end on Sunday during the annual commemoration of the Sept. 15, 1898 Malolos Constitution. Carmela Reyes-Estrope/tsb
