Obando, Bulacan is best known for the "Fertility Dance Festival" wherein couples who wants to be blessed with a child dances as they sang praises to Sta. Clara hoping that their prayers will be heard and be granted. Magu, Miko, Gerome and me went to Obando to witness the festival at first hand and to capture photos of the people and the life in Obando. A big thank you to the Avena and Mendoza Family and to our friend Ervin Avena for being a great host and tour guide.
