What to do in Cavite: Maytinis Festival 2013 on Kawit, Cavite


Every December 24th, residents from Kawit (Cavite), other towns and visitors from nearby provinces, flock to this historic town to witness the annual Maytinis Festival.


It is an old Caviteño tradition, held every December 24th (Christmas Eve) featuring a spectacular recapping of St. Joseph and Virgin Mary's search for a place to stay in Bethlehem. It also showcases ancient biblical scenes from the Old to the New Testaments depicted in gigantic floats with characters played by Kawiteños.
