Pagsanjan Laguna's 11th Bangkero Festival Fluvial Parade
The 27th of March 2012 marked the beginning of Pagsanjan Laguna's 11th Bangkero Festival. Starting the day at 5:30AM (Manila Time), the people gathered to see and take part in the Fluvial Parade.
The bangka (boats) were modified with creative designs using environmental friendly materials; people "dressed up" the bangkas with whatever creative means and materials that are available in the province.
Aside from dressing up the bangkas, the people dressed up in old-time dresses and suits, representing an era that fills the people's memory with nostalgia and class.
It was a beautiful sight to see. To be here and enjoy the day was something worth the trip.
