It is fun to participate in the Pahiyas Festival in Lucban which is always celebrated on May 15 (whether it falls on a weekday or weekend). The festival is a thanksgiving feast to San Isidro Labrador, the Patron Saint of farmers and good harvest.
Pahiyas is one of the most awesome fiestas in the country. It falls on the feast day of San Isidro Labrador, the patron saint of farmers to show gratitude for a good and abundant harvest. It is celebrated in Lucban (most popular and commercialized), Sariaya, Tayabas and other towns in Quezon.
The Pahiyas Festival is always observed on a fixed date -- May 15 -- and this year, it's a Sunday. It will take another 5 years (on May 15, 2016, to be exact) before it is celebrated on a weekend again.
