The Pamulinawen Festival  is held in Laoag City, the capital of Ilocos Norte, every year in first or second week of February. Pamulinawen is the name of a woman made popular in the classic Ilocano song titled… Pamulinawen. Some believed that the said festival was named after a legendary bird.  

This feast is a religious Laoag festival to honor St. William, the province’s patron saint. 

The denizens of Laoag believe that St. William has reprieved Laoag from several natural disasters and helped make it the posperous city it is today. Pamulinawen Festival is something that the locals prepare for with plays, dance parades and other merry making activities that is being celebrated a whole week. 
 
Aside from the festive activities, tourists are also visiting Laoag because of many mouthwatering delicacies; some are as follows:
