Butanding Festival

A festival which ushers the “Butanding” (Whaleshark) season and a thanksgiving for its blessings to the people of Donsol.  Now that they are back, the festivity features  regatta, fluvial parade with boats carrying colorful banners and giant images of the butanding along the Donsol River, a street parade of life-size images of the butandings on floats accompanied by barangay delegations, brass bands, drum and bugle corps, and festival street-dancing contingents.
