The Pahiyas Festival is celebrated by decorating the houses in the town proper with colorful props made out of the Quezon’s products, to show resourcefulness and creativity. During the pandemic, the locals continued to celebrate the festival, appropriating the public restrictions and doing alternative ways to celebrate to keep the festive spirit alive.
