Magsaya! MagGumaca! Mag Aryana Baluerte Na!!

Oh no, this is not not what you think, i mean Pahiyas? its a big NO!!! It's Araña't Baluarte!!

From the words Araña (Chandelier) and Baluarte (Fort/Bastion), this is perhaps based on the town's ever famous landmark, the San Diego de Alcala Fortress, fondly called as Kastilyo.

The festival serve purposed its give thanks to San Isidro Labrador (the patron saint of Quezon), the patron saint of farmers, for a bountiful harvest they have for the year.

This festival is different from Pahiyas in Lucban – instead of houses being decorated with local produce, baluartes are decorated with various agricultural products like bananas, vegetables, buco, pineapple, and root crops; some are beautifully arranged in arañas.

Here some of the photos during the happening of the Aryana Baluerte!

I really enjoy this event and I admit this is one of the best fiesta I attend not because of the nice shooting for photography nor the food, its because of the people they very hospitable and I like the way they treat the turista!!
