It’s been raining in Diliman for the past few days but students from the University of the Philippines are unperturbed. Just last week, a number of student organizations sold baked goodies, books and other items to raise funds while others were getting ready for the Karolfest 2011 held yesterday, December 9. The UP Planner was also launched last week making it an exciting week for the students but the real fun is yet to come. Paligsahan ng mga Parol 2011 more popularly known as the lantern parade will be held on December 16, 2011.
This year’s theme is Isang Unibersidad, Isang Komunidad to promote oneness within the UP community.
This tradition is something that many UP students and alumni look forward to. For those who would like to see the parade, make sure that you get to the university early because hundreds maybe even thousands of people will be there.
