A pig is roasted during a festival in Balayan, Batangas province, south of Manila to celebrate the feast of St John the Baptist. Roasted pigs decked out as superheroes and mud-coated farmers paraded in Philippine villages to mark some of the Catholic nation's most colourful religious festivals and several thousand revellers marched behind mini-trucks carrying roasted hogs through Balayan, with bystanders periodically dousing the raucous procession with buckets of water.
