Thanksgiving for a bountiful harvest in Sariaya, Quezon Province. May 15 is the feast of San Isidro, Labrador, patron saint of farmers in Sariaya. Several towns in Quezon celebrate the day as Thanksgiving for the year's bountiful harvest. In Sariaya, Quezon, the celebration is called "Agawan Festival" (Grabbing Festival). The festival is not only a day of Thanksgiving but also a way of sharing one's bounty.
Those chandeliers you see are made out of eggplants, carrots, and rice talks strung together. Pretty clever, eh?
You see the bamboo trees (known locally as bagakays)? They are adorned with fruits and junk foods, and the whole thing are lowered down after the procession for people to grab on for fun.
Interesting colorful decorations made out of native fans and hats.
You see those girls at the window? They are friends of mine who were lucky enough to experience the unique, enriching, interesting, and visually festive way of celebrating Thanksgiving in the Philippines.
