Fiesta in Bloom

It has been a tradition in the Philippines to celebrate town fiestas yearly. It is the time of the year when people gather together to honor their patron saints or to commemorate the foundation of their respective towns.

Witness the parade of colors of summer and the warm smiles of street dancers....

Or experience the charm of the flower inspired fancy outfits....

Even the choreography is patterned to a flower in bloom...

This must be a very colorful and fun event. It is very culturally meaningful as well. I enjoyed the glimpse into the festival and the pretty flower costumes.
