When: May 30

Where: Bulan, Sorsogon What is it:

  • Town Fiesta celebrated to honor Bulan’s patron saint,  Our Lady of Immaculate Conception.
  • The festivities are an expression of this coastal community’s gladness and thanksgiving for God’s bounties and gifts.

Attractions and Highlights:

  • Grand presentation of ethnic music and creative street dancing.
  • Showcases colorful costumes fashioned from the abaca fiber.

Origins:

  • Padaraw is derived from a purely Bicol term which is commonly used by local fishermen.
  • The root word “daraw” refers to the groups or schools of fish which converge at a certain single point in the sea.  This daraw becomes a convergence point for the fishermen to make their catch for the day.
  • Padaraw therefore, means unity.
