Started April 28 until May 4, the weeklong celebration ended with a parade of merrymakers in colorful costumes made of indigenous costumes. What makes the parade special and unique is the beat the parade participants dance to. The beat is an original, named Sambita beat, composed by the former Mayor Luis Jalandoni Jr., a bongo player himself. The Sambita is played by drum beaters using percussion instruments.
