It features a parade of carabao-drawn colorfully decorated carts carrying the newly harvested crops and fruits. This feast originated from the early rituals of ancient Bicolanos who offered their harvest to their Gods as a way of thanksgiving and to ask more bountiful harvest. The festival also features revelers in beautiful decorative costumes who dance around the city.
