"Celebrating Lucban's fiesta in splendid colors" Top 5 Page for this destination Lucban by Tijavi

Lucban Travel Guide: 95 reviews and 419 photos

If there is one thing that this quaint town in the foothills of Mt Banahaw is famous for, it would be the Pahiyas Festival - arguably the most colorful of Philippine fiestas.

Pahiyas is celebrated every 15th May to honor the patron saint of farmers, St. Isidore of Labrador (San Isidro de Labrador). Like most Philippine fiestas, the day is marked with merrymaking, eating and gathering of friends and families. But what makes Lucban's fiesta extra special are the colorful kipings (colored rice wafers) that adorn homes and stores - something that has attracted foreign and local visitors alike.

    You do get around don't you! Again, great info and wonderful pictures. For some reason, the people with the least are the most thankful for what they do have.
