LA’s Filipinotown is looking a lot like Christmas. Marchers paraded with parols or star shaped lanterns down the street Friday night. Celebrants were served lechon or roasted pig along with a sweet ginger drink known as Salabat, according to a report in the LA Times. A Filipino chicken congee rounded out the meal. The annual parade is a tradition carried on by the Neighborhood Council & the Burlington Nursery School.
The parols used were different from traditional ones. Instead of candles, these parols were powered by electric lights.
