The annual event is held at the end of October to foster the spirit of cooperation among villagers while trying to keep sweet memory of the past through objects, such as wondumak (a straw-roofed lookout set up in the middle of a field), a small neighborhood park and a durebak well (a well from which people draw water with a bucket tied to the end of a rope). Visitors from urban areas can also get mental peace amid the sweet atmosphere of a rural village.
