[VIGAN, ILOCOS SUR, PHILIPPINES]The Bigueño creativity was released from its old home—naïvity. The clamor of the people to see cultural events in the city is something that is very powerful, then the Raniag Festival is born. Pop culture mixed with local elements was well-received by the Bigueños. The result became so epic my imagination didn't even achieve.

[VIGAN] ▬ RANIAG FESTIVAL'S ELECTRIC FLOAT PARADE


▬ Raniag Twilight Festival and Pop Culture ▬


#VIGAN


THIS EVENT IS IN LIGHT OF POP culture's Halloween. When we say Halloween, usually we think of darkness and what's in the dark. We tend to think about ghouls and ghosts, right? In Vigan, although this notion is still present, this has been gradually replaced by the festive colors and the blasting artistry of Raniag Twilight Festival participants and performers.

The street lights were intentionally turned off allowing these electric floats and street performers to take the challenge of becoming stellar in the darkness. The light they produce will determine their fate. The goal is to be the most beautiful piece in the midst of the dark.

I actually followed the parade route so that I can take photos from different locations. I started taking photos in front of the city hall of Vigan where the floats gathered before the parade.

They started the parade at Quezon Avenue then had a turn at Liberation Boulevard upon reaching the Simbaan-a-Bassit. The last part of the parade route is the Calle Crisologo.


▬ Entering Calle Crisologo ▬


THE COBBLESTONE STREET WAS CROWDED WITH LIGHT-emitting giants, electric floats, a mob of Ilocanos in creative costumes and a piece of American pop culture. This is how I describe the Raniag Electric Float Parade in Calle Crisologo. 

The electric floats became more stunning when they entered this historic street because of the good lighting and the old-world ambiance.

[VIGAN] ▬ HELLO FROM RANIAG ELECTRIC FLOAT PARADE 2015!


Above are the 133 photos I took during the 2015 version of the Raniag Festival Electric Float parade.

The streets of Vigan became alive as the electric floats gracefully promenaded the parade route. Festival dancers dressed themselves with both luminescence and heat-based light. They have to stand out in the dark—that is the very essence of this artful cultural event.

It was a mixture of just anything else resulting close to abstractionism yielding an entertaining and beautiful effect. The event was so inanimate, so unnatural. There were floats to spook but some were here to bring laughter. Some are just sarcastic. Some are just creatively beautiful.  So far, I consider this event as the highlight and must-watch feature of this festival. ▬ to be continued...
