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. – 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!
Look at me in those photos, it looked like it was really my first time! I had a lot of fun being in the perya and agh, I will always treasure the memories that I had in there! It was so fun and there are a lot of people who came to enjoy, too. <3
I hope you enjoyed and thank you so much for reading this post. I hope that the colors in the pictures made you smile for a bit. 🙂 I also hope you’re having a good day wherever you are and don’t forget to be happy!
