Parol Workshop 
Instructors: Rosie Acopan Ramiro and Phil Fernandez-Brennan
SAT OCT 29, 10 am - 12 noon
1 session - $25 (includes parol kit) 
Join educators Rosie Acopan Ramiro and Phil Fernandez-Brennan to learn how to make a Filipino Parol (Christmas Star lantern). 
Parol lanterns are displayed outside of houses, businesses, and streets throughout the Philippines as early as September through the Christmas season. 
The tradition of parol dates back to the Spanish colonial period when Christians would carry torches and candles in a Christmas Novena procession leading up to their churches for midnight mass. 
“Parol” comes from the Spanish word “farol” which means lantern. This lantern symbolizes the star of Bethlehem and is an expression of faith and hope. 
Participants are invited to join the Filipinos in Manoa group in the Manoa Christmas parade this year.  
Limited to 15 participants. 


This workshop is made possible with support from the Hawai‘i Tourism Authority's Kūkulu Ola Program, administered by the Hawai‘i Community Foundation.
