Pasko 2011: Ligao City Fiesta

After a fun and tiring Christmas Day on the road and with my love ones, I’m getting a chance to recharge because December 26 is Ligao City’s Fiesta. Fiestas in the Philippines are held to celebrate a patron saint. For us, it’s St. Stephen, the saint stoned to death.

Fiesta means lots of foods and drinks. YUM!

When you see a vehicular accident when it’s fiesta, you can almost always count on drunk driving as the cause. This one’s an early morning reminder NOT to DRINK and DRIVE.

I visited my lola living in a simple house in the middle of a ricefield. Ah, the fresh air!

I met up with my barkadas for lunch. The trick you have to remember during a fiesta is not to eat too much in a single visit. Remember, you still have dozens of options.

Reminiscing high school is something we never get tired of.

Change venue 🙂

You can’t also miss the perya (carnival, fair) where you get to enjoy some rides and play some games.

my nephew likes the Not So Grand Carousel

I like to take my chances with the Running Lights.

Ligao City is also famous for its Giant Christmas Tree as tall as a three-storey building

The PEACE sign that Ligao puts up on the city hall every Christmas season. Yes, the motorcycle is on NEUTRAL.

By the way, Ligao City doesn’t have any official name for our very own festival. Any suggestion?
