The Higantes Festival of Angono, Rizal

The Higantes Festival of Angono Rizal is one of the most grandiose celebrations of the province. The festival is so called because the festival is replete with 12 foot paper mache giants which is aptly called “higantes”.

Also the procession of the higantes is duly accompanied by “pahadores” (devotees and locals who are dressed with fishing paraphernalias)

The feast is in honor of San Clemente, the patron saint of the Fishermen.

The celebration is held every November 23.
