Sidlak Kasilak: Bohol’s most unique festival

The lights are brighter in Loon.

The night in Loon got brighter as the town celebrated, perhaps, the most unique festival in the province last week.

The town celebrated the 18th Sidlak Kasilak festival or the Festival of Lights.

This festival is unique since it is the only festival in the fiesta island of Bohol being celebrated at nighttime.

The celebration is also a festival being offered to the Our Lady of Light, the town’s patroness.

Students from eight schools in Loon town showcased their talents as they used the lights to show the pageantry of the festival.

The students also showed patterns using some lanterns that illuminated the dark night.

Some patterns also turned out the wave and also changed colors as the students danced to tunes.

Several key officials led by Gov. Edgar Chatto and Loon town mayor Elvi Relampagos were on hand to witness the festivities.

The Sidlak Kasilak festival is one of the most anticipated celebrations in Bohol by both locals and tourists to the island province.
