Higantes Festival is commended each 22 and 23 November in the city of Angono, Province of Rizal in the Philippines to respect San Clemente, the benefactor holy person of anglers. The celebration includes a parade of several higantes, papier-mache mammoths. Higantes are manikins rendered as man or lady in different ensembles, their face gives a directing look, their hands on the abdomen.

The celebration's beginning can be followed back to the time of Spanish frontier control when, as Angono was a ruled hacienda, festivities were disallowed, with the exception of one celebration for each year. The Angonos individuals of Angono utilized the celebration as a chance to ridicule hacienda proprietors by making papier-mache cartoons—a craftsmanship they gained from Spanish ministers.

In the present time, the Angonos construct higantes to speak to each barangay littlest regulatory division in the Philippines, town for the celebration's parade. In like manner a higante with a duck-molded heard, for instance, speaks to a barangay well known for broiled duck and balut bubbled duck fetus eaten from its shell. The quantity of higantes has expanded to hundreds after some time, with an ever increasing number of craftsmen making higantes in different sizes and shapes. Courses or workshops on higante-production through government bolster have likewise added to keeping the celebration alive.
