PASACAT Philippine Performing Arts Company is hosting its 13th Annual Parol Festival at the Joe & Vi Jacobs Center on Saturday. The parol is a festive, star-shaped lantern that adorns homes and shops throughout the Philippines during the holiday season. Bring the kids and spend the afternoon learning how to make a parol of your own, and check out the entries in the festival’s parol-making competition. You can also enjoy the company’s traditional dance and music performances, take in a cultural exhibit of costumes, props, and instruments, and sample a light meal (merienda) of lumpia, pancit, and pandesal.
General admission tickets are $12 and can be purchased at the door; discounts and preferred seating prices are also available. Parking is plentiful and free.
