Ati-Atihan Festival is held annually every January in Kalibo, Aklan in the Philippines honoring the Santo Nino (infant Jesus). A feast marks the beginning of the festivities followed by tribal dances with vibrant costumes, traditional music and a parade held on the third Sunday of January marking the culmination of the celebrations.
The festivities attract both devout Catholics and nonreligious people from all over the world, making it one of the biggest tourist attractions for the Philippine Islands. National Geographic named the festival one of the “Must-Attend Events of 2016.”
