The Higante’s

The Higante’s is tradition of Angono’s began last century. It gives joyous fiesta in honor of San Clemente whose image, resplendent in papal investment, is borne by male devotees during a procession accompanied by parehadoras devotees dressed in colorful local costumes, wooden shoes and carrying boat paddles and higantes, giant paper mache effigies. The street event culminates in fluvial procession at the Laguna de Bay amidst revelry that continues until the image is brought back to its sanctuary.

Higante’s is a Philippines tradition, during fiesta it gives more fun and enjoyment to all especially when the higante’s parade, because it is a part of the Filipino culture. Anyhow, the photo below is at Villa Escudero Resort in Tiaong, Quezon. We visit there last May; actually we did not feel the beautiful view of the place because that time the weather is not good and have an excessive force rain. Vince requested to me to take a photo together with the higante’s.
