Higantes Festival is Angono Rizal's annual joyous celebration in honor of San Clemente, the patron saint of fishermen. The parade of the colorful paper-mâché Higantes is part of a two-week long celebration of the Angono's Town Fiesta. This year, several activities were lined up for the Higantes Festival. One of the highlights is the Higantes Grand Parade on November 17, 2013 which usually starts around 7:00 in the morning. The parade is scheduled to start in front of Angono Elementary School going around the town's residential roads and ends at the town plaza.
Another must-see is the celebration of Angono's Town Fiesta on November 23, 2013, the Feast Day of San Clemente. There will be a procession of the image of San Clemente. It will be so much fun as there will be a fire truck that will sprinkle water to the townsfolk. It is believed that it is a sign of blessing when you get wet during the procession.
