Giant Lantern Festival
Pampanga City December 2018
Twenty foot- tall giant lanterns are quite literally the stars of the show at San Fernando, Pampanga, the Christmas Capital of the Philipines. Set to happen in December, the month-long celebration of the Giant Lantern Festival is on its 110th year of showcasing a rich and colourful tradition. Visitors can choose to go on a tour to meet Fernandino craftsmen and gain insight on San Fernando’s culture and heritage before coming to see the manually-operated Giant Lanterns up close.
