Mall guests are in for an enriching cultural experience to see Buddha being bathe in scented, blessed water – a ritual that symbolizes the community’s warm welcome to the deity. During the first leg of the celebration, there will be a flower offering segment and wishing tree activity for interested mall guests who wants to immerse in the ritual. The ceremonial bathing will also be followed by lively and exciting cultural performances.  

The cultural performances extend to another fascinating and proudly Filipino-Chinese communal festivity in celebration of National Heritage Month. Filipino and Chinese schools in Metro Manila will participate in the annual cultural showdown known as the Parian sa Binondo on May 19, 4 p.m.  


The word “parian” is derived from the old Malay word similar to Filipino language “puntahan” or “padiyan,” which translates to going to a place of festivity. The term also denotes an ideal place where one can perform in a flat surface. In the olden times, it refers to the plaza or town square. It later evolved into modern festival performances enclosed in shopping malls that greatly attracts a number of mall guests. 

 For this year’s Parian sa Binondo, a number of groups will put their best foot forward as they put on a cultural competition filled with singing, dancing, and other various of performing arts that are deeply imbued in the Filipino and Chinese culture.  

There will also be a series of lectures on Filipino heritage and culture. The event is in partnership with the Federation of Filipino Chinese Chambers of Commerce & Industry, Inc. (FFCCCII).
