Getting Ready For Piyestang Obando

On May 17-19, the famous Obando Fertility Rites or simply Obando Festival will again be the center of attention. Obando?! Where exactly in Bulacan? I am not familiar with its exact location really or how to reach it by commute. So before the main event takes place, I did a little familiarization tour.

I asked some fellow bloggers on how to get there, and they really are of great help.

From Manila, I went first to Victory Mall at Monumento, Caloocan via LRT Line1 (P15). At the back of the mall, there's a terminal of jeep bound to Paco, and these jeeps will pass by the Obando Church. It was like a 20 minute ride from Victory Mall to Obando Church (P15).

However, the church is closed when I got there at around 2:30 PM so I was not able to check the inside.

Across the street is the plaza and beside it is the Colegio de San Pascual Baylon. I can't imagine how many visitors will fill the area on the day of the feast.

After eating the banana-q I bought on the food stand at the plaza, I hopped into the jeep (bound to LRT-Victory Mall) going back to Manila. Yey, I'm ready for the fiesta na.

Here's my Obando Fiesta (2011) Experience.
