Regada was derived the spanish word “regar” from the chavacano speaking Cavitenos, which means water or to sprinkle. Regada Water Festival has been a yearly tradtion to celebrate the Feast of San Juan Baustista every 24th of June. The annual tourism oriented festival has evolved into a combined environmental, religious and cultural activity.
Its a nice feeling that while walkingÂ on the street people are pouring water on each other. Every year people from Cavite City and other towns gathered to street to celebrate and get wet.
And its been a while since I last go out and get wet together with my friends and fellow caviteÃ±os. I think I’ll need to attend Regada Water Festival this time, hopefully some of my friends will come too. Want to come?
