It's been years since I last spent Holy Week in Cauayan. This week, I just stayed home but it is a work-full week. It also happens that the city is celebrating the Gawaygaway-yan Festival. So it's festive yet reflective week. Tiangges are all around but the best part of going to the Old Centro is food tripping! I went there twice this week looking for something but did not actually buy a lot except for a pair of slipper. Just walking around the block and looking at excited children already satisfied my eyes.
Gawaygaway-yan Festival is celebrated from March 30 to April 14. This festival showcases vegetable harvests from each barangay. It also commemorates the hardwork and creativity of the people of Cauayan giving tribute to their ancestors, the Gaddangs. The Gaddangs were the first settlers of Cauayan. It is said that they were fond in planting vegetables. Below are the rest of the activities for this festival.
