UP Lantern Parade 2015 | College of Fine Arts winners

The annual UP Lantern Parade is a Christmas tradition of the university. This was my first UP Lantern Parade experience. I thought I should watch to support my daughter’s block at the College of Fine Arts. The whole university was in a festive mood, even the light rain couldn’t stop it. Food stalls from Banchetto set up tents along University Avenue – which was, of course, my first stop. 🙂

This year’s theme for the College of Fine Arts was all about Classic Filipino Movies. The freshmen were given the movie Genghis Khan, and my daughter was one of the Mongolian princesses. 🙂

Because “Fine Arts”, hindi sila kasali sa university-wide contest, of course. Instead, the college holds a separate contest among its students.

Here are the winning floats from the College of Fine Arts at the UP Lantern Parade 2015:

Third place: Juan Tamad goes to Congress. ‘Nuff said, eh?

Second Place: Asiong Salonga, with his army of goons in tow.

First Place: Ang Panday. This float is my personal favorite. Up close, the details in this float are amazing. The face looks a lot like a young FPJ, indeed. And the glow of hot embers from the Panday and his pandayan – perfect execution.

The float of Facifica Falayfay was one of my favorites too. Nakaka-miss din pala si Dolphy. I remember that my dad, being not so much a Pinoy movie fan, likes Dolphy only, among all Filipino actors.

The float features a revolving Dolphy head, and one side depicts the gay Facifica Falayfay. Oooh, I remember watching this comedy movie in our black and white TV after school when I was a kid! Susunod ang Ibong Adarna, starring Rogelio dela Rosa!… or Manang Biday, starring Gloria Romero… LOL. Yes I am old. Of course I am, I have a college student kid.
