Lechon Festival: Municipality of Balasan

Municipality of Balasan
Every 3rd week of July

The municipality of Balasan annually celebrates its Lechon Festival as an opening salvo for its Religious and Municipal Fiesta. The festival is considered to be one of the provinces’ ultimate fiesta experience and that visitors should not miss. Balasanons want a really special treat for their festival and they go for the fun and exciting Boodle Fight during lunch. The entire community with their guests and visitors look forward to it, a military style of eating where long tables are prepared and arranged on the streets of the poblacion, the centrepiece is the lechon placed on top of banana leaves bordered with rice and ready to be eaten using bare hands, jugs of water are prepared on the side to wash hands before the “eating combat”. The municipal mayor signals the boodle fight to start as everyone aims for the best part of the lechon.
