Festivals


Festival means feasting and celebration; in the province of Laguna, festivals are held throughout the year in order to celebrate and honor the saints or products that define the way of life of the people. On the other hand, a festival promotes the livelihood of the town/city through business-generating opportunities and also promotes tourism of the locality.
