Pakaradyan Festival, which culminates June 21, intends not merely to reminisce and to bask in the founding of the municipality but also to share the beauty of culture and arts of each group belonging to the tri-people namely Christians, Blaans and Maguindanaons under the leadership of Mayor Alfonso Singcoy Sr..
