Colorful Street Dancing of Paet Taka Festival of Paete, Laguna
The Paet Taka Festival is a reincarnation of the defunct Ukit Taka Festival a few years ago showcasing the art of carving of Paete in various media from the traditional wood to the present ice, vegetable, fruits, chocolate , butter and others. The date of festival celebration is reckoned from the birthday of Mariano Madrinan, a local town hero of the arts.
The street dancing pictures were taken on September 28 during the festival parade where floats from Paete's nine barangay participated.
