Paskong Pinoy Presents: Fiesta Filipinas’ Giant Lantern Festival in Pampanga


The Philippine Embassy in Japan and Sentro Rizal – Tokyo invite everyone to virtually see the sights and sounds of Christmas in the Philippines through the Fiesta Filipinas Giant Lantern Festival!

The art of parol-making is famous in the City of San Fernando, the capital of Pampanga in the Philippines. It dates back to the year 1908. Derived from the Spanish word “farol,” which means lantern, the “Parols” were used by the townsfolk to light the streets on their way to attend the Simbang Gabi.
