Filipino people celebrate at least one celebration or festival per month, but the most of their favourite festivals fall in the month of May.
I watched this beautiful festival that brings the people close together. This festival falls on the 15 th day of the month and is celebrated by the agricultural communities of Quezon, a province in Luzon. Pahiyas, or the feast of San Isidro Labrador who was a farmer from a town in Madrid Spain. A statue of him is paraded through the streets while families showcase there best harvest they had.
The community thank God for the past harvest and seek his blessings for the next planting season. A festival to see

It is remembered by young women dressed as biblical characters, some dress as the Virgin Mary, and the your her girls dress as angels.

Local women dressed in there best clothes follow the float, and each woman carries a flower as a tribute to the Virgin Mary.
