Pateros Town Fiesta 2013

My apologies for the very late post of these pictures from the Pateros Town Fiesta 2013 held last February 10, 2013.

I was able to take the following pictures of this historic day, which were held mostly at the San Roque Parish Church. The Pateros Town Fiesta 2013 honors St. Martha, the town’s Patron Saint.

Better late than never.
