Ikkis ti Candon

A Candon, Ilocos Sur resident in a colorful costume dances on the city’s main street during the Tobacco Festival on Monday. Aside from commemorating the city as the country’s biggest producer of Virginia tobacco, the festival also celebrates the “Ikkis ti Candon” roughly translated as the Cry of Candon which was one of the first revolutions in the Ilocos region during the Spanish era.
