Gabby and the Lechon Parade

The Lechon Festival - Parada ng Lechon - is celebrated annually on June 24 in Balayan, Batangas as part of the town's celebration of their patron saint, St. John the Baptist. There is a parade of roasted pigs in the town center, as well as playful dousing of water to commemorate the baptism and sainthood of St. John. 

It's the day of the Lechon Parade! Gabby checks on his family's roasted pig, their own entry for the Best Lechon prize. The lechon looks and smells so good, Gabby could not help himself and tries to have a small taste. But wait... what happens next?
