Bulacan is known as the Culture Capital of the Philippines for holding the most historical events in the country. Plaridel, in particular, is well-known for its colorful Horse Festival, “Pintakasi ng mga Caballero”. The 400-year old tradition falls on December 29 and 30 and celebrates the feast day of Saint James the Apostle. Moreover, the festival features a parade of students dancing in traditional and colorful clothing. For this reason, parades are held by horses and their horse owners by traveling from the chapel of Sipat to the Plaridel Parish Church.
