About Binalbal Festival

The Binalbal Festival is a yearly festival held on the first of January in Tudela, Misamis Occidental, Philippines. It is a unique celebration of respecting the new year for the townsfolk of Tudela. Members are camouflaged using veils which permit them full opportunity of restraint during the new year celebration. In the festival, individuals or onlookers wear covers and outfits that would speak to their own meaning of "Binalbal".

Binalbal is gotten from the local tongue "Balbal" which is Cebuano, it alludes to a heavenly family of weird looking lifeforms: imps, witches, monsters, and any semblance of them. Particularly like a monster Halloween ensemble party, the Binalbal festival is a important cultural celebration where many revelers are clad in gory costumes. Since its initial beginnings, the festival customarily begins on the night until midnight of December 31st  known as the " Masquerade Ball" and proceeds on the early afternoon of January first, which is the excellent parade of Binalbal Festival.
Everything began as just wearing veils on New Year's Day to camouflage the character of a man. In the mid 1930s, conspicuous individuals of Tudela took an interest in this issue, including Gregorio Aborka, Sofronio Inting, Edmundo Ruiz Sr., Gregorio Nebre, Florentino N. Olarte, Jose Singson, Alberto Raagas and other unrecorded identities in metro barangays of Tudela.
