LUCBAN QUEZON PAHIYAS 2012

The town of Lucban Quezon is known as the famous pansit lucban, langgonisang lucban, and Pahiyas Festival.  The Pahiyas Festival is celebrated in honor of San Isidro Labrador, the patron saint of farmers. Every 15th month of May this is the one of the Philippine’s most colorful festival and tourist attraction. They change the route of Pahiyas Festival every year, for the reason that to give other houses to decorate. They have a Pahiyas Festival Decorations contest,  the grand prize is cost P 100,000.00, the first price is cost Php 80,000.00, second is cost Php 60,000.00 and the third is cost Php 15,000.00 and they have more consolation prices which is cost Php 5,000.00. The most familiar to all is the colorful kipping decoration it is made of rice with a leaf-shaped wafer design. Most of the houses have a colorful kipping decoration. It is the one decoration that gives the shining and fantastic Pahiyas Festival.  I know that the best time to watch the Pahiyas is early in the morning because you can see the procession of the image of San Isidro that will pass along this route, as if blessing the families and for plentiful harvest during the coming planting season.

My hubby and I went to Lucban, Quezon at 6:30 pm it’s almost 30 minutes from our town of Pagbilao, Quezon.  The houses of Lucban are decorated with fruits, vegetables, kipings, carabao which is symbolized the farmers, the different decorations when you see the lifestyle in the farm.   They have much beautiful attraction; I want to take a photo of  full view  houses decorations but they have many people to captured and walk.

Here are some photos taken.
