The 11th Liliw Gat Tayaw Tsinelas Festival 2012 Experience

After a weekly activity we’ve been attending for the past few months, some of my friends decided to make a brief side trip to Liliw, Laguna. We were fortunate to have the visit on the last day of the 2012 Gat Tayaw Tsinelas Festival.

Liliw, as always, was in a festive mood, only this time it was more intense. There were booths along one of the most popular streets in town – Gat Tayaw Street – selling newly released shoes and sandals, flowers, and food. The street was literally packed with visitors. We learned that there were also night booths for more food and drinks. But that, I think, was mainly for the townsfolk and for those who opted to stay longer in town.

I soon found out that there were more old houses in town than when I first took pictures of some of them. Perhaps another visit in order, plus a visit to the famed Arabella. Let’s see.
