Biniray Festival is a way of thanksgiving for the blessings from the sea. The celebration starts in the early hours of the morning, with a flotilla of intricately decorated boats that encircles Bulalacao Bay. The traditional putong (crowning) of the patrons Peter and Paul complete the final rituals. A street dancing is also staged during the day participated mostly by students in indigenous costumes
