Raniag Twilight Festival: Vigan's Halloween Celebration

The city of Vigan has it's own way of making the Halloween fun and exciting and this defines the Raniag Twilight Festival. This festival has the goal to make Halloween season in Vigan bright and happy.

Raniag is an Ilocano term for "light" or "brightness." This festival showcases the creativity of the Ilocanos by creating wonderful Halloween costumes that are not limited to ghosts.

There is also a float parade and every float must have a "glare" or a notable brightness that will enlighten the night of the souls. It happens every last week of October just prior to Halloween.
