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.
