PHILIPPINES, June 24, 2016: Faces covered with mud, and wearing costumes made of banana leaves, devotees attend a mass which is part of a religious festival honoring St. John the Baptist – also known locally as the "mud people" festival -- in Aliaga town, Nueva Ecija province, north of Manila. Farmers coated in mud paraded in Philippine villages to mark one of the Catholic nation's most colorful religious festivals.
