One of the most awaited event is the Paskotitap Christmas Lights and Sound Parade or Paskotitap Festival. It is an annual parade held every December in the city of Pasig. Paskotitap is a beautiful exhibition of electronic floats sponsored by participating institutions and schools.The event will also showcased all beautiful designed floats and performances of dance troupes from each school. It was a project of the Rotary Club of Mutya ng Pasig and Ortigas group of Companies with the help of Participating schools, Barangay and City officials.
It was truly was a beautiful Christmas evening last Sunday (December 13,2015). It was a magical night! This year’s Paskotitap Christmas Lights and Sounds presented 14 popular animated themed floats from action, epic, fantasy and adventure movies. Superp floats to represent reastically all the 14 movie-themed concept in distinctive characters; Dragon Ball, Sponge Bob,Pokemon,One Piece, Minion, Star Wars, Avengers, Fantastic Four, Jurassic World, Lord of the Rings, Scoobie Doo, Doraemon and Transformers. It was fun- filled excitement to see all floats colorful decorations, set up with eccentric lights, beautiful music that goes well with the float theme and participating students with elegant and ravishing outfits.
The float designs and artistry is quiet astonishing. A friend behind said, It’s spectacular! People beside me keeps on roaring, cheering and dancing. This parade attracted thousands of people and visitors around Pasig eventually rising to more this year.
This is already my 5th consecutive year of covering the Paskotitap.I had published the 4 other coverage in the past. I started way back –year 2011 during the Power Puff Girls, Kitty, and Avatar time. For the first 3 years, I’ve published only the evening coverage and all images done by night photography but last year 2014 and up the present, I’ve made double effort to photograph all details ahead of time, that was done at midday and be back again in the evening for my night details. It was a double pressure to do it twice but indeed with pleasure as well. At midday, the colorful features of the float will come out but not as vivid during the night. That’s the difference.
Initially, the event due to start at 6:oo pm but this year, it was delayed to some issues, a float generator is not working and there’s a quick rush to catch up the limited time for installation.
As originally planned to follow the parade directly all the way to Pasig City Hall for the performances and awarding of winners for Group dance contest, Best float and costume design but as expected, traffic has exploded out of proportion, I was caught in a traffic jam for hours because major roads are fully congested.
You can see here all the themed floats creative design and decorations have been brought together in almost perfect coordination possible. I’m here to share the excitement.
