Pintados Festival 2019 is a colourful event celebrated by the people of Tacloban. It seeks to blend cultural and religious facets to unify the local community.
Initially, Pintados Festival was observed to honour Santo Niño. It has since been combined with the Kasadyaan Festival which is observed every year on June 29. This not only created a greater platform to celebrate the culture, it also extends the scope for the city’s tourism sector.
