It's That Time of the Month

Today is the 13th day of the month so, in Sibulan there is a mini-festival that takes place this time every month in honor of the town's patron saint, St. Anthony of Padua, whose feast day is the 13th of June. Each month, on the 13th day, vendors will gather in the area near the Catholic church.

Later tonight, there will be a Mass which very nearly the whole town will attend. All along the streets, there are also individuals selling candles which are to be burned in an area on the church grounds. Normally, when my wife attends, she'll not buy candles from theses folks on the street, preferring to purchase her candles from the nuns who will be at the church.

While taking my morning walk, I took a few photos of the vendors in front of the church, the elementary school and public park.
