Ritual dances are a favourite activity for Filipinos. Kabkaban is a special dance that is believed to be a cure from evil spirits and bad thoughts. Also, kabkaban is the name of a plant that grows all around the city of Carcar.
Nowadays, the celebration is wider than the city itself, as people from all over the country join it annually. Additionally, this is one of the highlights of Carcar’s Fiesta, organized in honour of its patroness St. Catherine of Alexandria. The Kabkaban Festival is celebrated every November 24th and 25th, so you can just go and enjoy this extraordinary party.
