Christmas in the Philippines: Maytinis Festival 2014 in Kawit Cavite

Maytinis Festival 2014 in Kawit Cavite

More than a dozen floats paraded tonight for the annual Maytinis Festival in the historic town of Kawit in the province of Cavite. Maytinis Festival is a well-loved Caviteño tradition held every Christmas Eve that showcases a dramatic recapping of St. Joseph and Virgin Mary's search for a place to stay in Bethlehem. It also features unique Filipino translation of the ancient biblical scenes of the history of mankind's salvation from the Old to the New Testaments depicted in dazzling floats with characters portrayed by Kawiteños.
