Devotees take part in the Taong Putik (“mud people”) festival. Each year, the residents of the village of Bibiclat celebrate the feast of Saint John by covering themselves in mud, dried banana leaves, vines and twigs. According to locals, the festival traces its history from the Pacific War and reenacts how rain stopped the execution of 14 villagers by Japanese soldiers in 1944. The townsfolk considered this as a miracle from Saint John and every year since then the villagers roll in mud to show their gratitude to the saint
