(Lucban, Quezon, Philippines) – Every 15th of May, the municipality of Lucban celebrates the Pahiyas Festival in honor of the patron saint of farmers, San Isidro Labrador. It is a day-long activity where houses of partici

pating streets decorate their facades with fruits, vegetables, handicrafts and kiping – a rice-made colorful ornament.

With the invitation of a friend who lives in Lucban, I filed a leave from work to experience fiesta like no other. I will let the pictures speak for themselves.

“Kiping means color frenzy. I have never seen this much variety of colors since I opened my first Crayola box”

“Having your photos taken by the balconies is a must if you go to Pahiyas.”

“Fruits and other colorful agriculture-related materials used as decorations.”

“The Pinoy bee finds its nitch in Lucban.”

“The height of houses is never a hindrance to Lucbanons to decorate in full swing.”

“Name all the vegetables you can see in this photo.”

“How about a reggae concert?”

“And dancing in the streets”

Roaming Lucban, checking out the beautiful houses, attending day concerts and dancing can be tiring so making a few snacks available in the streets makes absolute sense. Here are a few of those delectable food trips that I spotted while going around.

“More than a decoration, kiping can be fried and eaten. After all, it’s made of rice!”

“You cannot go to the province and not eat kakanin”
