Angono Fiesta Celebration

The celebration of the Feast of San Clemente also known as Higantes Festival is nearing.  The ala feast of San Juan wherein basaan is done happily and aggressively  hehehe.  Starting November 19 (which just passed by hehe) there will be bigger events that will happen (refer to the website of angono for details), with some side tracks as well.  There will be other organizations in Angono that will have their own mini events – but I’m not sure if I should call it “mini” since some other events are also big and sponsored.

The young artists of Angono, the Neo-Angono Artists Collective (NAAC), is one of the few organizations that will be having a series of events together with the main events of Angono.  There will be public art displays: the body painting and the tattoo competition, installation arts, henna, etc.  The group will alsobe  producing their own gig with a lineup of bands that are from Angono and outside. 

I will be announcing more of this schedule in my blog or in the upcoming blogsite of NAAC, (which I’m still working on the last few bits of details)

If you are near our beloved town, you are very much welcome to visit this grand event.  We will be happy if we could share our culture, our arts, our passion, and our celebration with you.

Higantes Festival Aftermath

Grabe! The celebration was awesome! Monday night, the Neo Artists and our friends organized a live band gig street party sponsored by Manila beer.  We set up our henna booth in that area instead of our usual place near the town plaza.  Different artists performed, and there were a lot of people coming...friends, friends that we haven't seen for quite a time, and people we don't know.  There were a lot of pretty ladies too!

By 4:00AM, a few people left but there were still liters of beer.  My cousin who is the head organizer started to cry out for help in finishing all the beer left.  A lot of us were already, if I may say, 'destroyed' that time already.

It was fun, loud, and a helluva party!  It was somehow a mini reunion for all of us.  We all went to grab some silog after cleaning up.  We waited until 6:00AM to prepare for the parade.  The parade ended at 11:00AM, we got home to catch a quick fuzz then went out to have lunch and drink our guts out.  I'm a total wreck by 8:00PM.

That fiesta is one of the wildest and memorable parties we've had.  I missed that kind of fun sooo much. Too bad I wasn't able to take a picture because I was so busy having fun.

Higantes Festival

Tomorrow will be our town fiesta, the Art Capital of the Philippines - Angono, Rizal - will celebrate another fun filled, water splashing, and crazy packed parade and celebration.

The parade is one of the longest parades during fiestas, full of people with bands, majorets, and people with their own fun-crazy gimmicks.  There are a gathering of all artists from painting, music, sculpting, and acting genres.  A lot of media and foreigners will flock the streets, as well, to watch this grand festival.  The families of the well-known National Artists from Angono will also participate in the parade, the likes of Francisco family, Blanco family, Miranda family, San Pedro family, and a lot more!

The Neo artists will be there too who just finished their mural, and the famous Angono wind instruments will play too.  We will be having our booth for tattoo and henna together with my Kuyas and tropas who are fellow artists.  By night time, we will be playing music with my band and will be drinking fountain of beers!

I already filed my leave, and I can't wait til tomorrow. It will be awesome! Another moment to remember and to cherish.  My town, my pride!

Hope you guys can join us!
