PHOTOS: UP Lantern Parade 2013

Lots of superhero sightings this year!

( Today, throngs of people made their pilgrimage to the Academic Oval in UP Diliman for the annual Lantern Parade. This marks, among other things, the start of Christmas vacation for the school and has become a beloved tradition for iskolars, Quezon City residents...and people with friends or relatives who are iskolars or are QC residents.


People started making their way to the area well before the event kicked off at 4 p.m. to get the prime spots. This year’s theme, in tune with the times, is rebuilding. Fireworks, which typically marked the end of the parade, were skipped in favor of donating to those affected by super typhoon Yolanda.


Still, there was much to be merry about-including the fact that the parade happened at all. There was that initial decision to turn the parade into a sort of exhibit but, fortunately, they ruled in favor of motion and the lanterns made their way around the oval.



Here’s a quick preview of this year’s parade:
