Parada ng mga Lechon, Balayan, Batangas

Visit the Balayan page for all information on Balayan.

A lechon on a table during fiestas is already a big wow for the visitors. How much more of this: a whole parade about 100 of these mouth watering, roasted pigs! This is what we could witness every 24th of June at Balayan, Batangas. Local Balayan folks do this tradition in commemoration of their patron, St. John the Baptist.

Institutions and different social organizations in Balayan participate in this event. They decorate and dress their respective lechon — sometimes, in wigs, sunglasses, raincoats, or whatever the Balayan locals want — and at the end of the day, the best-looking lechon takes home the bacon. Nice isn’t it?

Here are videos of the annual fiesta from Youtube.

Feature on QTV, Channel 11

But guys, this is the best part. After the lechon parade, everybody is invited to have a taste of these crispy lechon.  Certainly, a great way of celebrating fiesta right?  Wow lechon. Wow Balayan!
