In few days Lucenahin will once again celebrate Pasayahan sa Lucena 2018. This is a celebration here in Lucena City wherein not only Lucenahin celebrate but nearby places also come to witness our celebration. And it is because the celebration happens every last week of May; many students are still on vacation so you could see crowded people especially at night during the time period.
Before Pasayahan was 3-day celebration from May 28 – 30 in time for the celebration of the feast of St. Ferdinand, Lucena City’s patron saint. As the years go by, it became a week-long celebration. From the first day of celebration, the streets of Quezon Avenue and other conjoining streets are closed for the tiangge. Performances of famous local bands are also held on different areas of the main street, and of course, food and beer are also flooding along the streets. There’s also this very colorful Flores de Mayo, where the members of Quezon Designers’ Association of the Philippines (QDAP) showcase the best of the best of their collection.
The main highlight of the celebration is the Grand Parade or Mardi Gras. It is a parade of huge and colorful floats of the participating companies and organizations, along with street dancing and marching bands. The usual starting point of the parade is at Pacific Mall Lucena going to SM City Lucena. The best float, best in street dance, and best in costume would be given some awards and cash prizes.
Here is the schedule of activities for this year Pasayahan sa Lucena
