FLOATING SKY LANTERNS

FLOATING SKY LANTERNS. A highlight of the Raniag Vigan Twilight Festival, the Floating Sky Lanterns was held on October 22, 2018 at Jardin de Caridad. Families with loved ones buried in the cemetery, like this family in the photo, took the chance to visit their loved ones ahead of All Saints Day and participate in the event.  At around 7:30 in the evening, the large crowd that gathered in the cemetery released hundreds of lighted paper lanterns into the night sky. The Raniag Vigan Twilight Festival aims to commemorate the departed loved ones with offerings of light and is held every last week of October ahead of the “undas” holiday.
