Pahiyas Festival is one of the famous festival in Quezon, to honor San Isidro Labrador. It is the farmers' thanksgiving for a bountiful harvest with a grand display of colorful rice wafers, fruits, vegetables, and handicrafts adorning every house in the town. Check out WikiPilipinas for more info. I was really curious and looking forward on what to see the night before the feast as they say that those who participated in house decorations for Pahiyas festival, are also putting lights for people to see.

After getting high from the Panagbenga festival in Baguio (which is being held every February), I then tried to look out for another festival which fits my budget. Wondering what's in Pahiyas festival, made me push this trip. Unlike other festivals, Pahiyas in Lucban Quezon has a fixed date yearly - which is every 15th of May. Luckily, May 15, 2011 is a Sunday so we didn't have problem on getting a vacation leave.
