I remembered before when i visited kalibo, the bars were only open during fridays and some on saturdays. Now a lot of bars are open even during weekdays and one of these bars is Abregana. Abregana is a big restaurant/bar/live music place in Andagao. Owned by the Martelinos, it was also situated in Judge N. Martelino St. in Aklan. When u enter the place, the hotel is at your left and the bar in the middle. The tables and chairs were arranged boracay style. Bean bags on the floor and huts w tables and chairs on the other side. As local as it sounds, they have up to date music and acoustic/live band everyday.
Dress Code: No dress code

Address: Judge N. Martelino St. Andagao, Aklan
Throughout the parade route, there were various little stalls selling everything from jewellery to Festival Hats. The Festival Hats were very popular and were selling very well for 100 pesos. (pics #1 & #2).
I also took a pic (#3) of a local grocery store along the parade route. It was very busy and sold just about everything, including lovely fruits.

Address: Along the Parade Route
During Holyweek people come to Manduyog Hill, located in Banga another town of Aklan, its about 30 minutes jeepney ride from Kalibo. You need to go through the gate of Aklan State University in going here, the hill is inside the campus of the school and from the gate its a 5-10 minutes walk to the foot of the hill. You can just tell the driver to drop you off at this gate or you can ride a tricycle from Banga town proper to get you at the foot of the hill. Here you can take station of the cross to a little higher level, literally because its a trek up to the hill as you finish the station and you get a nice view up there.. Also there are life size representation of each station.

1804 - Another church and a convento was constructed
1885 - Tragedy struck when a big fire raze the town, including the convento
1886 - Convento reconstructed
1947 - After WWII the Church was reconstructed and remodelled
June 14, 1990 - An earthquake measuring 7.1 hit Panay Island. The church suffered major damage including cracks on its walls
1993 - The church was restored and improved to accommodate the many pilgrims who come to celebrate the Feast of Santo Nino
