Last May 15, we went to Lucban, Quezon for Pahiyas Festival. We didn’t explore the place much because we just stayed for almost 3 hours. I thought we will witness the grand parade but need to leave the place as soon as possible. My sister planned was to be there for a short time because she has another place to visit that day.Oh well, she has the car, hahah!
The time wasn’t enough but good thing we experienced Pahiyas Festival even for a short time. Lucban, Quezon is near to our place I think about 30 minutes from Lucena but we don’t really visit the place during Pahiyas. So it’s good thing to see the festival this year. There were many people attended the festival. I saw many foreigners enjoying the festival and fellow Filipinos from other places.
Here are some photos I have taken at Lucban, Quezon Pahiyas Festival 2015
Today Lucban, Quezon is celebrating the annual Pahiyas Festival. This is a celebration in honor of St. Isidore, the patron saint of farmers. The festival showcases houses decorated with colorful “kiping” and farm produce such as fruits, plants, rice and vegetables. This is their way of thanksgiving for the bountiful harvests.
This festival is listed by the Department of Tourism as one of the most colorful tourist attractions in the Philippines.
