San Fernando Pampanga's Giant Lantern Festival

On its 102nd year of lantern making, San Fernando Pampanga's 20 ft. x 20 ft. lanterns entertained local and foreign tourists who came just to witness the very colorful and world renowned festival.

Baranggay Sta. Lucia bested 8 other baranggays (Dolores, San Nicolas, Telabastagan, San Jose, San Pedro, Santo Nino, Santa Lucia, Del Pilar and San Juan) in the annual Ligligan Parul (Lantern Competition) which happened last December 18, 2010.

This annual tradition before Christmas serves as Fernandinos' way of working towards unity and progress as one people.
