Ana, who took the poison out of the lanzones fruit so that it can be edible, thus, the name Ana kalang Festival, in honor of the fruit which is one of the town’s main agricultural product. | | Coconut Festival - San Pablo City, Laguna
Coconut is one of the main products of the city. To make the most of the “Tree of Life”, and to show the world the talents and ingenuity of the local townsfolk, the Coconut Festival came into existence. Now on its 10th year, having its maiden year on January, 1996, the coco fest is held during the celebration of the city’s patron saint, St. Paul the First Hermit, which falls every 15th of January. | | Feast of the Risen Christ - San Pablo City, Laguna
An age-old tradition for the San Pableños is the observance of the Holy Week wherein a procession of life-sized images in huge carozas (floats) depicting the passion of Christ is done. Held every Holy Wednesday and Good Friday, a religious holiday, people from near and far were free to troop to this place to witness this event. | | Mayflower Festival - San Pablo City, Laguna
Another age-old tradition that the San Pableños celebrate is the Flores de Maria sometimes also called as Santacruzan held on the month of May, one of the summer months in the Philippines. The Flores de Maria is offering of flowers to the Blessed Virgin Mary done by small girls to teen-aged ones donned in gowns. Before the offering of the flowers, these lovely ladies parade in streets at night. Santacruzan, on the other hand, is a reenactment of the finding of the Holy Cross on which Jesus Christ was crucified. | | Festivals of Lights - San Pablo City, Laguna
