Pahiyas Festival is a colorful feast in honor of San Isidro Labrador, the patron saints of farmers, as a thanksgiving for a bountiful harvest. Houses along the old streets of Lucban are artistically decorated with agricultural harvest, and of the very unique highlight of the festival, the "kiping". It is a wafer made up of rice that comes in different colors. The Lucbanons come up in different designs every year, as they showcase their artistic talents in decorating their houses.
This is my first time in this festival, before I just saw this event in the calendars and photos in the newspapers and also watched in Teevee, but this 2008, I promised myself to really get to see personally the festival...thanks to Daddy who really brought me safely in Lucban, with side trip to the Grotto. So check this out guys! I hope we can bring you next year on this colorful event...enjoy our photos.
