Parada Ng Lechon

Who doesn’t love lechon? This Philippine delicacy has been part of the Filipino culture as far back as our Spanish colonial history. It has been a symbol of our culture and colorful fiestas and festivities, and somehow brings a sense of togetherness and celebration whenever lechon is served on the table. Enjoying a serving of lechon is a luxury to most so imagine seeing numerous roast pigs being paraded around town for all to see, smell and savor. The town of Balayan, Batangas celebrates the feast of their Patron Saint St John the Baptist, with a bit of Filipino authenticity. On June 24 every year after the mass dedicated to St. John the Baptist, delectable lechon are dressed to the nines and paraded around town on colorfully decorated floats or even by foot by the locals. Decorating the lechon shows the creativity of the locals of the town. From a lechon dressed as St. John the Baptist himself to flower wearing hula dancers, the festivity is definitely a feast to the eyes and the tummy. The paraded lechons are then enjoyed and shared to locals, visitors and tourists after the procession.Be on the lookout for villagers who will drench the parade spectators with water. This is another tradition in celebrating the feast of St. John the Baptist, to signify the water baptism of Jesus Christ.
