Pinoy Festivals : Pahiyas Festival 2011 in Lucban Quezon



Pahiyas Festival is an annual must-see event in the town of Lucban Quezon. It is celebrated every 15th of May to give thanks to San Isidro Labrador (Saint Isidore) for the town's abundant harvest with a grand display of colorful rice wafers (kiping), vegetables, fruits, and handicrafts adorning every house in the town. It is also believed that celebrating would ensure another bountiful harvest ahead.

Pinoy Adventurista says: I’ve been to Lucban last year as a side trip for our Western Laguna road trip. My friend is asking me to join them for the Pahiyas Festival this year, but I haven’t decided yet if I will come. Maybe after my Laoag trip on May 6-8 I will be able to decide. Who’s going?
