My home town of Sampaloc, Quezon will kick off their 5th year of Bulihan Festival this April 24-26, 2015. The annual festival and event of colorful decorated homes and costumes made of “buli” or buri leaves will showcased the town folks creativity, craftsmanship, hard work and pride of being a Sampalokin.
