LA VIRGEN MILAGROSA ARRIVAL REENACTMENT

LA VIRGEN MILAGROSA ARRIVAL REENACTMENT. The arrival of La Virgen Milagrosa is reenacted at the Ilocos Norte Centennial Arena as part of the La Milagrosa Provincial Fiesta held on May 25, 2013. In the early 17th century, a number of fishermen who were doing trade along Dadalaquiten, which borders Badoc (southernmost town of Ilocos Norte) and Sinait (northernmost town of Ilocos Sur) found the large wooden box which encased La Virgen Milagrosa (image of Virgin Mary) and Apo Lakay (crucified Christ).
