Belenismo sa Tarlac

Belenismo sa Tarlac is a yearly spectacle and competition in the province of Tarlac that showcases colorful and artistically-made belens (or nativity scenes). Across the whole province, government office, commercial shops, schools and malls have installed belens of different themes, sizes, shapes and materials. The use of environmentally-friendly and biodegradable materials.

The PNP Station based in Gerona is the perennial winner but the belen in Capas grabbed the 1st prize for 2009. I myself was amazed how dried corns have been assembled to create human-like images of the characters in the nativity scene.

Here are some photos taken around the Tarlac city:
