Annual UP Lantern Parade canceled

dreadful newsMANILA, Philippines — The grounds of University of the Philippines (UP) Diliman will not be illuminated by colorful floats as the premier state university has decided not to hold its annual Lantern Parade.

In a Dec. 10 memorandum, vice chancellor for community affairs Aleli Bawagan said that in lieu of the parade, a simple program would be held at Quezon Hall on Dec. 18 at 6 p.m. “to commemorate and remember the entirety of 2020,” when the country faced one tragedy after another — from the eruption of Taal Volcano in January, the ongoing pandemic since March and the onslaught of typhoons from October to November.
