Pahiyas Festival Tour Packages for May 15, 2010 Saturday

The Pahiyas Festival is being celebrated each year to honor San Isidro Labrador, the patron saint of farmers. Quezon folks particularly in Lucban, decorate their homes with colorful agricultural produce; they string fruits and vegetables together and make the “kiping,” the traditional Pahiyas décor of many colors.

lucban_pahiyas_festival-tour-packagesThese are leaf-shaped wafers of rice makeup and looks like Spanish tacos; these are used to liven up halls and walls, and more craftily turned into arangya (chandeliers) that lighten up the town on fiesta night itself.

The literal meaning of “pahiyas” is actually decorating houses with kiping and vegetables. Aside from this, however, fruits, ropes and straw hats are also utilized. The decorating frenzy starts sometime before the actual fiesta, and the air is abuzz with healthy, friendly competition over who will have the best ornamented house that year. Whoever does gets a reward from the local government.

Other things to try out while there are the pancit hab-hab (which is eaten off banana leaves), the Lucban longganisa, the kiping that’s actually edible and is said to be best dipped in vinegar. Also, visit the Lucban Church and put on some straw hats.
