Roasted Pig Parade
- zdan, CNN iReport producer
Parada ng Lechon or Roasted Pig Parade is celebrated in Balayan, Batangas every 24th of June. Hundreds of dressed roasted pigs are paraded on the streets and while the parade is going on, participants and audience wet each other by throwing water to each other because this festival coincides also with the feast of their patron saint, St. John, the Baptist.
This festival is fun and mouth watering.
