7 Giant Lanterns featured in Ligligang Parul 2020
Seven barangays will be participating in this year’s Giant Lantern Festival, locally known as Ligligan Parul, in the City of San Fernando, Pampanga.
The festival, scheduled on December 16, will feature entries from Barangays Sta. Lucia, Bulaon, Telabastagan, Calulut, Sto. Niño, San Juan and San Nicolas.
Organizers said the event will not be open for public viewing but instead streamed online as public gatherings remain prohibited under the existing community quarantine guidelines.
“There will be no competition. It will just be an exhibition in keeping with the tradition of the decades-old festival,” they said.
Media coverage will also be discouraged but those who will opt to cover live shall pass thru strict health screening.
