My First Time In A Perya! (Philippines)

Hello everyone! Today’s post would be an adventure one because I finally had the chance to go to a perya last February. Some of you might wondering, what is a perya? Don’t worry, I’m here to explain it, too!

“Perya” is a nod to the unique place of carnivals in Philippine culture and society. Even with the advent of new media, perya or fair, has not only continued to become a source of entertainment, but also a shared reflection of Filipinos values, hope and even art itself. –Β Google Arts and Culture

In short, a perya is a carnival wherein Filipinos go to spare time and enjoy. It is usually set up during fiestas in barangays and is deeply adored and enjoyed by everybody. It also has rides like roller coaster, horror train house and others that you can see in a high theme park. There are also a lot of mini games like color game, bingo and games wherein you can win huge stuffed toys or something of your choice!

I have always dreamt of going to a perya. We had one in our hometown, but it was gone for now and I have never got to experience it. So yes, last February, in Silang, Cavite, I finally got the chance to experience the joy of being in a perya with my friends. I loved it so much and took a lot of pictures because it was actually so colorful and very aesthetic. I just love this Filipino culture and tradition of ours.

Here are the pictures!

  10. Hi! Perya is almost gone in the Philippines nowadays maybe because of the presence of the theme parks that are highly commercialized. Good thing you still found one and looks like you enjoyed it. Perya will always be part of our culture specially during town fiesta.

    1. Hello, thank you so much for reading! Oh yes and it’s so sad, it’s been always a part of our culture and I hope it still gets the attraction it deserves. I live in the province and I’m glad other places here still have it. x
