Grand Electric Float Parade






     The province of La Union, surfing capital of Northern Philippines is celebrating its 163rd foundation anniversary. In line with this occasion a Grand Electric Float Parade was held on February 27. I had a great time listening to music being played and watching the illuminated floats parading along the streets of Balaoan, La Union.

     Sharing with you shots from the said event. The floats were mostly made of indigenous materials and featured each town's main product. I still can not make up my mind as to which float is my favorite. Be the judge.












































"Unity, Peace and Order Sustain Progress for All," is this year's foundation anniversary theme. 
I join the government in working for that goal. 

I'm looking forward to another highlight of the province's anniversary which is the SILLAG festival of lights which will be held at Thunderbird Resorts this coming weekend.
For last year's SILLAG revelries, you may want to check here.

May you all have a lovely weekend! 

`special thanks to the best brother in the world and the best sis-in-law 
in the entire universe for taking me there`

  8. Such a festive event deserves a national media exposure. Given a chance to travel some cities in the Philippines, this city is definitely in the list. I have heard of La Union because of its famous surf sites (as mentioned by Jerecho Rosales) in one of his interview years ago.
