Religious or not, Lenten season in Pampanga offers one of the most "interesting" traditions. Devout Catholics atone for their sins by whipping their backs bloody with bamboo sticks & nailing themselves to wooden crosses. Check out our list of religious events & ceremonies to experience in Angeles City.
Philippines is a predominantly Catholic country. Pampanga has a very interesting way of celebrating Holy Week. People have a literal approach of showing penitence for their sins. What exactly happens? Starting from Maundy Thursday to Good Friday, it is not uncommon to see flagellants whipping their backs bloody. People hold an all day & night vigil chanting all the verses of the Bible. Some people even get themselves nailed to crosses.
7107 imf at Clark is the coolest music event to happen in Pampanga- ever. Amasya Guesthouse is happy to host the crew of Stage Riggers Philippines. They did a fantastic job with setting up the venue. Congrats guys, job well done!
