Parade of Roast Pigs held at Balayan, Batangas, Philippines every 24th of June. Curly wigs, sunglasses, a bridal veil and a groom's formal tails: Filipino festival goers have given a new meaning to dressing up a crisp, golden-brown roast pigs to parade through the streets. Roast pig, or "lechon", is festival food for Filipinos, a dish that brings all the community together to celebrate the feast of St. John the Baptist with a parade of succulent roast pigs.
