UP Lantern Parade 2010 showcases creativity of students

Christmas 2010, UP Main Building

The University of the Philippines (UP) held today the UP Lantern Parade 2010, which was participated in by the state university’s different colleges, units and organizations.

All UP Lantern Parades are not just about lanterns: they’re also about highlighting the creativity of students while at the same time, making statements about issues that need to be addressed.

For example, the College of Mass Communication called for an end to the killing of journalists.

Last year, the international media group Committee to Protect Journalists (CPJ) said that the so-called “Maguindanao Massacre” in southern Philippines “appears to be (the) single deadliest event for the press since 1992, when CPJ began keeping detailed records on journalist deaths.”

Fine Arts

The presentation of the College of Fine Arts was the finale because it’s considered a “hall of famer” in terms of creativity.

This year it featured sea-inspired works.


A lot of people trooped to the university to witness the annual event.

The mood was definitely festive during the UP Lantern Parade 2010.
