LIGLIGAN PARUL 2012 + BALE DUTUNG Christmas Tour! (Dec. 15, Saturday)

Ligligan Parul 2007-32

Mangan Tamu! Ligligan Parul! The Ultimate Pampanga Food and Heritage Tour

Journey to the central heartland as we immerse ourselves in things Kapampangan!

From Buro to Baroque, it's a fun-filled day as we poke around and get intimate with the very best of Pampanga's cultural offerings. Gaze at the jewel-box of a church in Betis while wading through the lahar-buried town of Bacolor. 

We'll stuff ourselves silly with a pre-Christmas Kapampangan noche buena fare by one of the country's best known Kapampangan chefs! And to it cap it off, get a front row view of the most dazzling display of Kapmpangan artistry the Ligligan Parul (Giant Lantern Festival) of San Fernando! It's a tour with nothing but Kapampangan cool!
