San Fernando, LU Now Has a Christmas Village, and It’s Awesome!

THINGS TO DO IN LA UNION PASKO SA KAPITOLYO

Looking for unique ways to spend Christmas weekends with friends or family? Head over to San Fernando, La Union and experience its Paskuhan Village!

Dubbed as “Pasko sa Kapitolyo”, LU’s recently introduced Christmas Village combines fun Yuletide-themed activities and displays for all ages. Thousands of colorful LED lights were installed on the 600-meter uphill pathway that connects the town plaza and San Fernando’s Provincial Capitol Building. This includes a massive tunnel fronting the capitol and white and blue lights illuminating the entire Filipino-Chinese Friendship Pagoda.

Boasting an impressive architecture that overlooks the bay, the capitol building is hailed as one of the most beautiful public structures in Central Luzon. However, because of its obscure location on a hill, not a lot of people – even locals – know that it exists. Those who do only make their way to the building to secure government documents.

During the event’s launch last November 30, Provincial Governor Pacoy Ortega shared that the event aims to promote the building as an added attraction for locals and tourists and to introduce local artistry and small and medium enterprises.
