Photos from the Fluvial Parade in Bula, General Santos City

parades. more fun in the philippines

IT’S ONLY on January 15 that you would see over 300 fishing vessels cruising Sarangani Bay in a seemingly choreographed manner. That’s all because of the Feast of Sto. Niño,  the patron saint of the people of Bula, General Santos City.

Not your ordinary day out with the kids. This father takes his kids out into the Sarangani Bay where fishing vessels wait for the fluvial parade to start.

One thing is sure– this man is a Kobe Bryant fan or at least one of his kin is. Devotees usually dress up their Niños during the feast, and this man chose a yellow Lakers jersey.

Finding a boat to ride during the fluvial parade is a difficult task. You are a chance passenger. No, it’s worse. You are a chance passenger who faces the risk of getting drowned. Your “pakura” (a banca) might just get overturned by the waves or unbalanced distribution of weight. You better be sure you know how to swim. Moreover, should you be lucky enough to find a vessel that will let you in, it might just be as crowded as this.

Old Man

I WAS in charge of photo documentation during our school’s celebration of Dr. Jose Rizal’s 150th Birth Anniversary.

I spotted this old farmer who helped us plant trees so I snapped a photo of him. Happy father’s day to him and to all the fathers who happened to come across this blog.
