    A Walk to remember

    Pahiyas Festival is celebrated as the feast day of San Isidro Labrador. Usually, there is a route wherein the image of the saint is being paraded around the town. The houses on this route are decorated with colorful KIPINGS, dried rice stalks, vegetables and fruits to thank and ensure for a bountiful harvest. I think he is the patron of the farmers. Try to get to Lucban early morning or in the late afternoon to witness the parade of floats being pulled by carabaos.=)

    Marvel at the colorful, kiping-adorned homes

    by Tijavi Written Aug 21, 2005

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    As colorful as you could get

    The traditional Pahiyas adornments consist of colorful rice wafers (kiping in the dialect) shaped into flowers, petals and lanterns. Every household along the Pahiyas route (which is changed every year by the festival organizers) try to come up with the best ideas using these decorative materials to wow guests, and judges.

    The best decorated homes are awarded prizes - aside from cash, the awards are a source of bragging rights for these households.

    But more than these 'earthly' concerns, the significance of the whole celebration is thanksgiving - to God and to the patron saint of farmers St Isidore of Labrador - for a bountiful harvest.

    Delicacies of Lucban

    Try:
    1. Lucban Longganisa (Sausage Lucban style) - found all over Lucban, garlicky in taste and reddish in color
    2. Pancit Hab-hab (noodles) - pancit is placed on a piece of a banana leaf and eaten without using a fork and sprinkled with vinegar to taste. Food stands in every corner sell this.
    3. Broas (lady fingers) from the bakeshop
    4. Hardinera - a specialty of Lucban. It tastes like embutido but cooked differently but very tasteful. When served, you would think it's a dessert but it's not. Best eaten with steamed rice.

    Kiping Decorated House

    It was my first time to attend the festival, wow.. its an explosion of colors, all houses more than a hundred of them all over Lucban are decorated with kipings and other fresh produces like vegies and fruits.

    All houses are decorated, and on the Saturday noon, its the final judging of the best decorated house to win the cash prices.. There is also a parade of the higantes..
