Jack o' Lantern making contest at Plaza Burgos, Vigan City.

JACK O’LANTERN MAKING CONTEST. A contestant intently works on the details of his jack o’ lantern using screwdriver, knife and toothpick. He was one of several contestants who joined hoping to bag the Php 5,000 first prize. The activity was held at the Plaza Burgos in the evening of October 19, 2018 as part of the RANIAG: Vigan Twilight Festival, an annual festival founded by former city mayor Eva Singson Medina. Traditionally held towards the end of October, Raniag Festival aims to commemorate the departed loved ones with offerings of light and serves as a prelude to the All Saints Day celebration on Nov 1.
