The Parish of San Isidro Labrador in Pulilan, Bulacan is dedicated in honor of Saint Isidore, the patron saint of farmers, and the patron saint of Madrid, Spain, as well. In fact, the town was called San Isidro Labrador before getting renamed as Pulilan from “Pulo ng Ulan”.
The town’s main economic activity is agriculture and it’s appropriate that their patron saint is St. Isidore. In fact, the famous Carabao Festival is held here every May 14 and 15, the latter being the feast day of St. Isidore. Every year, farmers haul their kalabaws from the fields, dress and decorate them up, then parade them amongst floats to the parish church. The parish priest then blesses the carabaos to help in bringing a bountiful harvest. A carabao race is also held on the next day.
Here’s a nice almost-ground-level shot of the Pulilan Church. I wonder if the area to the northwest of the church (seen from Google Local) is a cemetery? Those blocks are too small to be houses.
