Town Fiesta


Town Fiesta (The Feast of Saint Martin de Tours)

Saint Martin of Tours is the patron saint of Taal. His celebration falls on November 11, where a mass is held and then a grand procession of the patron saint and the Our Lady of Caysasay. This is followed by a lua, where young children are chosen to recite. A Hermano de Mayor is either selected or a person volunteers to be one. The Hermano de Mayor is the one who is in charge of the fiesta and also finances it. Together with the festivities is the Parade ng Kabayo or parade of horses around the town.
