up lantern parade 2013

Posted on: December 23, 2013

was able to catch the up lantern parade this year! i’m not sure what the exact theme was but i’m guessing it’s something about the different regions of the philippines. there were a lot of designs…

there was a pretty large fish, which was my favorite, it had a nice combination of gold and red colors.

vinta lanterns! oh these were simple, compared to the larger ones but very cool. kind of like boats coming to shore during the night.

i thought this was something out of a sibika and kultura book. i like the pattern around the float, it looks like something woven from a loom.

so eun, i had a lot fun watching ozummm lanterns, will go again next year!

yun lang.
