We're so glad this holiday tradition is back!

MANILA, Philippines – With the easing of pandemic restrictions, the annual Lantern Parade at the University of the Philippines-Diliman in Quezon City returned after two years, wowing students, alumni, and visitors on Wednesday, December 21.

As was typical with previous years’ parades, many floats bore progressive messaging on current events. The university’s colleges presented one float each.

Here are some snapshots from the event:
