Anilag 2010

March 7, 2010.

Ate Madie, Trisha, and I dropped by the province capitol to peek at the activities that day in the Anilag Festival. We were there just in time to watch the "Mardi Gras" presentation: dancers representing the different towns comprising Laguna performed their interpretations of the Anilag theme song.

Beyond the Mardi Gras was the trade fair. Each town had a booth showcasing products that had made the place famous. For instance, Sta Cruz featured white cheese, Binan had rice cakes, San Pablo had a hut made of coconut husk, and Pagsanjan had waterfalls. Paete displays all had extremely colourful crafts while Lumban featured pandan.
