Lucban, a town at the foot of the mystical Mt. Banahaw, thrives on agriculture and celebrates the harvest annually in honor of their patron saint, San Isidro Labrador. Each and every home transforms into a spectacle of colors, houses adorned with kiping lanterns, fruits and vegetables creatively put together, and even moving objects depicting ages old of harvest traditions.
The annual celebration kicks off at six o’clock in the morning wherein a mass is first held at the Lucban Cathedral, and followed by the blessing of each house.
It is then followed by different programs across the town, a float parade followed by models with dresses embelished in artfully put together crops.
Over 800 houses participated in this annual event. People from all over the country flock in here to witness the festivities.
And one must not miss the town’s specialty: Lucban Longganisa and Pancit Habhab.
Stuff your eyes with wonder, live as if you’d drop dead in ten seconds. See the world. It’s more fantastic than any dream made or paid for in factories.” – Ray Bradbury
