UP Lantern Parade 2012
Sponsored LinksAs part of the Christmas celebration in the University of the Philippines - Diliman, it annually conducts the so-called Lantern Parade. This day marks the start of Christmas break in the university as well as the opportunity for the different colleges and organization in the campus to show-off their creativity skills and advocacy in a form of a lantern. They can promote their beliefs, their way of thinking, their mission, and even their call to some issues in the country. The event is usually held in the UP-Diliman Academic Oval during the second Friday of December. People from different places and various age brackets gather in this event to witness the beautiful, massive and colorful lanterns created by the UP students and faculty. The event starts at 4pm and usually end at around 10pm with a fireworks display.
I was able to witness the 2012 Lantern Parade in Diliman and I can say that after four years of being away from this university, the event is still well-participated and the quality of lanterns did not falter as compared to the past ones.
