Theme for 2018 Parol Festival:
A Gathering of Lights
Join us again for our 16th Year, December 8, 2018! Let’s celebrate a memorable evening of lights and laughter! Our theme for 2018 is A Gathering of Lights. How does your parol design and performance relate to your cultural family traditions? How do you bring your Philippine Traditions to Light?
PAROL LANTERN PARADE
It’s the time of the year again, when the community starts making their parol lanterns and holiday decor to adorn their houses for the yuletide season. In San Francisco, on Saturday, December 8, 2018, the community will be holding the 16th Annual San Francisco Parol Lantern Festival – a must-see event during the holiday season.
The festival begins with a series of parol lantern-making workshops held at the Bayanihan Community Center and are still going on. Parol workshops are open to the public.
