cavite regada festival
Regada Festival
Regada Festival

June 22- 29 : Cavite City

It has been a yearly tradition to celebrate the Cavite City Water Festival more popularly known as "REGADA" every June. The annual tourism oriented festival has evolved into a combined environmental, religious and cultural activity. More so, the month of June is significant in Cavite City's history for its lasting contribution to Philippine independence and history.

"BE PREPARED TO GET WET," warned Cavite City's local officials to the guests and visitors of their Annual Water Festival. A wet and wild festival awaits tourist and other visitors when they come to the historic city to celebrate the feast of St. John the Baptist.

"Regada" was derived the spanish word "regar" from the chavacano speaking Cavitenos, which means water or to sprinkle. In a bid to hold the biggest water festival, Regada, will be staged in the one kilometer stretch along P. Burgos Avenue. The main thorougfare will be rigged with sprinklers and mobile sound system to transform P. Burgos Avenue into what could be the biggest wet party in the country.

Students and townfolks will fill the avenue to participate in the wet street dancing dubbed as "Basayawan sa Kalye". The participants will interpret the essence of the yearly water festival through colorful costumes and body movements and dance to the music provided by the giant mobile sound systems installed along P. Burgos Avenue.

The festival culminates with the holding of Caracol ni San Juan Bautista at around 11 o'clock in the moring, a fitting climax to the festival's origin in honor of St. John the Baptist in which people celebrate for the blessing by joining the "Paulan".

Regada started in 1996 during the tenure of the Mayor Tim Encarnacion and from then on, was held every year thereon during the month of June.
