I was able to document those colorful decorated designs of each house and agricultural harvest. Pahiyas Festival is by the way is celebrated in honor of of San Isidro Labrador.
I was with my travel buddies during the Pahiyas Festival. Travel time to Lucban Quezon is around 4-5hrs depending on the traffic. In our itinerary, we left manila when there is no traffic yet, 5am. We reach Lucban before 8am, just in time for the procession of the image of San Isidro Labrador. Actually, the procession of the image of San Isidro in the streets started around 9am already.
Pahiyas Festival Schedule during our visit:
6AM - HOLY MASS
7AM - PROCESSION
9AM - TIMPALAK PAHIYAS
2PM - GRAND PARADE

What to buy or where to buy longganisa in Lucban:
If you want pasalubong to your friends, longganisa is the way. It taste different that those in manila and more garlic and no food coloring. Other pasalubong you can buy in lucban are broas, meringue, camachile, apas. In buying Apas, buy in Pectos bakery.
Going to Lucban, you can pass by in Kamay ni Hesus healing church just before reaching Lucban. I think Lucban is around 30mins from Kamay ni Hesus. Kamay ni Hesus Healing Church which has bigger-than-life depictions of the Stations of the Cross and an image of the Sacred Heart of Jesus on the mountaintop. A recent addition are depictions of the Mysteries of the Holy Rosary on a hilltop just right of the entry-way to the church.
