We want our boys to be grounded with the right Filipino values and culture. We want them to experience what a real Filipino fiesta is all about with us, and tell stories about the Ati-Atihan in Kalibo.
We know that someday they will outgrow us and experience the fiestas with their own set of friends.
However, it was very difficult to research on Kalibo's Ati-Atihan because the internet searches are dominated by the hotel-booking companies, and the festival itself is overshadowed by the marketing-savvy Sinulog Festival in Cebu.
Also, we did not know anyone from Kalibo and the official website does not help either in explaining what to expect from the Ati-Atihan.
That's why I am very passionate about completing this Kalibo Ati-Atihan blog series to share with other families on how to plan their own Ati-Atihan experience even if you don't know anyone in Kalibo. This also serves as my own notes of learning and what to do differently next time we attend a fiesta.
