Binirayan Festival in Antique 2011

Antique’s annual festival is called Binirayan and it literally means, “where they landed”. It recalls the story of ten Bornean datus who were led by Datu Puti and Datu Sumakwel. In the early 15th century, they fled from the oppressive rule of Sultan Makatunaw and their subsequent settlement in Panay. The Binirayan Festival is where Antiqueños re-enact the evet through a pageant on the beaches of Malandog, Hamtic.
