The Villar Foundation’s 7th Waterlily Festival

The Villar Foundation’s 7th Waterlily Festival has all the ingredients of a festival—fun and festivity. The range of activities lined up for the day-long festival in Las Piñas—beauty pageant, fluvial parade, handicraft demos, and street-dancing—can in fact fill up the whole week!


But there is more to Las Piñas Waterlily Festival than that. It was really conceptualized in order to highlight the products made out of water lilies. The then congresswoman of Las Piñas, Cynthia Villar, thought of an effective way of helping the workers at the Water Hyacinth Weaving Enterprise market their products and holding a festival seemed to be a great idea at that time. And it was.

Now on its 7th year, the Las Piñas Water Lily Festival has never been more popular. Thanks to the attention gained by the livelihood enterprises including the Water Hyacinth Basket Weaving Enterprise of the Villar Foundation led by its Managing Director, Mrs. Villar.
