ARTES ITA PASKUA. One of the many festive events during the Christmas season in the Heritage City of Vigan is the torch and lantern parade. Now on its 14th year, the event has come to be known as “Artes ita Paskua” and includes a parol-making contest, Ms. Santa Claus pageant, mural painting contest, Christmas card making contest, and an inter-barangay Christmas installation competition. A highlight of the event is the lantern, torch and costume parade by officers and personnel of the Vigan LGU. (photo from the Vigan City Facebook Page)
