Crafters from the Filipino community and beyond have spent months hand-crafting the customary star-shaped lanterns (parol) that are as essential to the holiday season in the Philippines as the Christmas tree is here. Take in the colorful creations and enjoy cultural performances and community presentations, a lively parade that winds toward Jessie Square from Yerba Buena Gardens and an awards ceremony that rounds out this pleasant evening in SOMA.
