WOODEN SCOOTER RACE

AMAZING RACE. Young and old male villagers in Banaue, Ifugao, in northern Manila, Philippines join the 4.5-kilometer wooden scooter race last April 16, 2008 as one of the main highlights of the “Imbayah Festival” held every three years. The cultural festival is the grandest celebration marking the passage of one person and his family from common folk to nobility status in the community. - Harley Palangchao
