The Pista sa Calamba. Municipalities often organize various events and festivities to celebrate important occasions, cultural traditions, or local heritage. These celebrations can vary greatly depending on the location and the specific customs and traditions of the community.
During a municipal fiesta, you might expect to find a range of activities and attractions such as parades, music performances, dances, cultural exhibitions, local food and drink stalls, games, and fireworks. The purpose of these events is to bring the community together, showcase local culture and traditions, and provide entertainment for residents and visitors. Filipino fiesta usually has religious relevance in celebration of their Town patron Saint’s feast day. They come together in thanksgiving for the past year’s bountiful harvests and blessing. While there are also times when the past year’s gathering was not so good and they ask their patron saint for a better yield for the coming year.
