A feast with a twist. Residents decorate their houses with their harvest and handiwork, and put up pabitins (bamboo branches to which various gifts are tied).
Anyone can take the goods home but only after the statue of San Isidro Labrador passes in the procession. A mad scramble follows the saint, or people hang on to the items that they want, and wait for the saint to pass! Watch out for more gifts and goodies that fly out from the houses to the eager crowd on the street.
