Last month, I wrote about the Spark Lantern Festival in Ilocos. Well, I actually got to experience it myself last Labor Day weekend – and I’m telling you: it was well worth all of the time, effort and money. No regrets whatsoever!
As mentioned in my previous post, the Spark event is included in Triple 8 Travel and Tour’s Special Tour in Ilocos, which meant that we were actually able to experience a bit of Ilocos before and after the big event itself. Here are some photos of our tour before the event:

After that, it was time for the big event. While having dinner and some much-needed cold beer, we enjoyed listening to a few bands and DJs while getting to know other people enjoying the event with us.
Fireworks popped up in the sky every now and then, too, and there was also a 4×4 exhibition and some cool fire dancing.
Read on for the main events!
