Every 10th day of the month of February is usually the day for Pamulinawen Festival. The festival is now on its 13th year. Several activities and programs were lined up for all the people and guests of Laoag to see and enjoy.
The very highlight of the celebration was the street pageantry and the dance showdown. It was a showcase of the different festivals of the province and there was a sole entry from Caoayan Ilocos Sur. There were ten dance groups vied for the plum prize. There was a great cash prize of Php 100,000.00 for the winning group.
