Every Holy Week, the towns of Boac, Gasan, Santa Cruz, Buenavista and Mogpog in the island of Marinduque become one gigantic stage for MORIONES FESTIVAL.The "Moriones" are men and women in costumes and masks simulating biblical Roman soldiers as interpreted by local folks.It's characterized by colorful Roman costumes, painted masks and helmets, and brightly colored tunics.

I've been getting invitations to go to Marinduque but I am still undecided on the matter.Yes,I still don't know where I want to go.I thought Moriones will be interesting though.Yun nga lang,pahirapan ang pagpunta,I heard via Ro-Ro.Stressful.

But for those who are interested,I am publishing the Moriones Festival 2013 Schedule for your reference.
