San Pedro

Dubbed “Laguna’s Gateway to Metro Manila” due to its close proximity to the area, the city of San Pedro is growing quite into the residential community, thanks to the number of people who are making the jump to move to the province.

San Pedro is quiet and peaceful for most of the year, except during the months of February and December. This is when the town comes alive, due to the two major festivals that it celebrates.

The first one is the Sampaguita Festival, which aims to celebrate the sampaguita flower, considered to be the national flower of the country. San Pedro actually has its roots as the “Sampaguita Capital of the Philippines,” as sampaguita selling used to be a lucrative business.

Every second week of February, San Pedro’s streets are lined with floats showcasing the national flower as well as with people in Sampaguita-inspired costumes. The highlight of the festival is the crowning of the “Hiyas ng San Pedro (Jewel of San Pedro),” a title given to the most beautiful girl in the town.

The town is also famous for its Christmas festival, called “Paskuhan sa San Pedro.” There’s floats, fireworks, and student performances that keep the streets of San Pedro busy from the 1st of December all the way up to the last day of the year.

San Pedro may be a quiet residential town, but it certainly knows how to throw a party.
