Moriones Festival is an annual festival in Marinduque held during Holy week. Men and women wearing morion (mask) and Roman soldier's costumes are called Moriones/Morions. They roam in the streets to scare children, ask for foods or donations, and simply as a form of "Panata" or "Pagpapahirap sa Sarili". The final event of the festival is the Pugutan- a theater presentation featuring the story of Longinus - Roman Soldier present during crucifixion of Jesus Christ.
