Famous Giant Lantern Festival held in Pampanga, the city known as the “Christmas Capital of the Philippines”. In mid-December various lanterns or “parol” made by the local community are displayed at different locations throughout Pampanga until the end of the month. These parol are made of bamboo or steel, decorated with fibreglass or paper, and incorporate many LED lights into the design. The festival starts with a competition on the first night to judge the best parol.
