The City of Dasmarinas, Cavite celebrates the Paruparo Festival every 26th of November. The first Paruparo Festival was launched in November 26, 2011 coinciding with the 2nd Cityhood Anniversary of Dasmarinas. The metamorphosis of the butterfly resembles the events that the city underwent towards becoming a progressive city.
Due to the rains in November 26, 2016, the Paruparo Festival was rescheduled to the 3rd day of December. That day, thousands of Dasmarinenos flocked the sidewalks of Jose Abad Santos Avenue, Congressional Avenue, Gov. D. Magubat Avenue, Burol Main road, Aguinaldo Highway, Dano Street and Don Placido Campos Avenue to witness the parade of colorful butterfly costumes and floats. Students, government officials and non-government officials and personnel joined together to showcase these colorful attractions.
