The Giant Lantern Festival is an annual festival held in December (Saturday before Christmas Eve) in the City of San Fernando in the Philippines. The festival features a competition of giant lanterns. Because of the popularity of the festival, the city has been nicknamed the “Christmas Capital of the Philippines”.

Lots of Flickr photos and YouTube video.

    These remind me of one of the few good things about Blackpool, the place I grew up. They still have an annual festival of lights called the Illuminations when they fill miles of seafront with things like this.
