UP celebrates its annual Lantern Parade festival


MANILA, Philippines – University of the Philippines held its annual and festive Lantern Parade last Dec. 16, 2011 at its Diliman campus.

The theme for 2011 was Pasko 2011: Isang Unibersidad, Isang Komunidad, which was aimed at bringing the campus and the community together. The parade is an almost 90-year-old tradition usually held before Christmas.

The fireworks show went awry with 17 people injured when a pyrotechnic misfired and landed in a group of spectators.
