Giant Mascots or Higantes

By any chance have you encountered huge mascots or Higantes. Higantes commonly stand as high as 10ft. tall and often see them in any occasions like town fiesta, festivals and other events. They always present in Pahiyas Festival in Lucban, Quezon and Pasayahan sa Lucena to amuse people.

Higantes fitted with colorful costumes and have friendlier faces which make them very attractive. Higantes can walk, dance, run and perform various acts that give entertainment to young and old viewers. They are one of the attractions during town fiestas and festivals.

Anyway, last week of May we had Pasayahan sa Lucena. One of the events was grand parade happened last May 28. We wanted to watch the said parade but when we passed by at SM City Lucena all the participants are already coming. We saw Higantes standing at the sidewalk. So here is my daughter with Vince my sister in law’s nephew posed for a souvenir photograph with one of Higantes.
