On its 15th year, the Parol Lantern Festival has become a beloved holiday tradition for the Bay Area, SoMa Pilipino community. The theme for 2017 is “Let Tradition Be Our Light.” For Pilipinos, the parol lantern is one of the most iconic symbols in correlation of the Christmas season. In this annual festival we unite as a community in a family-friendly, at times competitive, but always enjoyable event to parade our homemade lanterns and share our holiday traditions with the whole City. Enjoy the parol stroll parade, parol gallery, view the winning commission parol lanterns, Pilipino holiday delicacies, live performances, the always exciting gimme games & see who earns top prize at the Tala Awards!
