Philippine Parol Lantern Parade and Festival

A "parol", is an ornamental star shaped lantern traditionally made out of bamboo and colored paper, used to light up homes, city streets and Christmas trees throughout the season.

Let's meet and celebrate with the local Filipino community during their annual Christmas lantern parade and festival of lights. There will be entertainment, food and of course, lots of beautiful lanterns.  Your presence and support will mean so much, especially as the Philippines is recovering from such a tragic typhoon.

Program is as follows:
5PM: Entertainment & Parol Gallery in Jessie Square
6:15PM: Parade Starts at Yerba Buena Gardens
6:30PM: Music, Gimme Games, and Tala Awards in Jessie Square

Since it may be hard to find each other in the crowds, let's meet at the Starbucks on 4th and mission at 4:30PM then walk over together.

***If you're interested in learning and volunteering to make lanterns for the parade, there is also a Parol making workshop at Hallidie Plaza on December 7. Please post up or message me if you would like to join the class or another meetup.***

    Oh sweet. Just wondering how long is the parade. Cuz last year it was fairly short.

      Thanks for the reminder! It tends to be fairly short, but I figure it was still worth checking out. We can all grab a bite to eat after

    My class downtown ends at 5pm, so I can't meet at Starbucks at 4:30pm. Instead, I will find you all in Jessie Square after 5pm--thanks!

      Thanks Sam! Just post up when you get to the area so you can find us :)
