The week-long festival showcases the province’s culture, tradition and people through various activities and competitions that include ‘palaro ng lahi,’ Philippine Tapestry fashion show, dancing competitions, and Binibining Kanlahi pageant. Concluding this year’s event on March 16 is a post-Kanlahi rite that gives recognition to outstanding Tarlaqueños.
