Barangay Luna’s fiesta is fast approaching. This year the fiesta date falls on June 20-21, 2014. Many years ago when I was a kid the fiesta was held every 1st of October. But now it was changed to every month of June. Fiesta celebration is the time of thanksgiving to barangay patron, in Luna it was the Immaculate Concepcion. This is the time of feast where every household has preparations of any varieties of food to be serve to all the visitor. Visitors are not choosen but instead, the house is open to everyone wether they are from different places, whoever they are even if you don’t know them or not. In short it can also be called as “eat all you can”. If you want to explore every ones houses food preparations, then you should have your tummy ready, because at the end of the day you be stuffed.
In terms of entertainment and events held during fiesta. Disco is always on the list. It usually falls on every Friday and Sunday night after the mass. The disco is being held at “kampo” as we call it at Zone 5. In zone 5 it is where the basketball court is located and there’s plenty of room for dancing people so its the best place for Disco.

During Fiesta in Luna, this is the best time to have fun and mingle with the youngsters, wherein teenagers goes home from the city to attend the fiesta celebration of their hometown. The pretty ladies and handsome boys comes home and other families comes home and makes barangay Luna alive and kicking, escape from all days work in the farm.
Fiesta here is an special occasion, people get stuffed and full, some get drunk, some gets in trouble with other drunkards but the most important thing is they have enjoyed themselves before another week goes back to normal again.
Happy Fiesta Barangay Luna!
