Ana Kalang Festival

Nagcarlan, Laguna
3rd week of October

Legend has it that Nagcarlan got its name from Ana Kalang, head of an ancient tribe, who removed the poison from the lanzones fruit to make it edible. The five-day fete is for a bountiful harvest of the town’s agro-industrial crops. On the last day, a grand parade tours the town, featuring dancers in striking native costumes and 10-foot high statues made of fruits and vegetables called kalang-kalang.
