The Municipality of Lucban or Lukban is a second-class municipality located at the foot of Mount Banahaw in the province of Quezon, Philippines. According to the 2010 census, it has a population of 46,698 people.The province is famous for its annual Pahiyas Festival, which is held every May 15th in honor of San Isidro Labrador the Farmer.EtymologyLegend has it the town derives its name from the lukbán or pomelo tree. Three hunters from neighbouring Majayjay— namely Marcos Tigla, Luis Gamba and Lucas Mañawa— lost their way following the trail of wild animals at the foot of volcanic Mount Banahaw. Resting under a tree, they saw a crow (uwák) in the tree's branches, and believing this to be a bad omen, they moved to another place and rested again. Whilst in the shade of a large pomelo (lucbán) tree, the trio were attracted to a couple of kingfishers (salacsác) that were singing. Fascinated by the bird's beautiful plumage and rhythmic chirps, the superstitious hunters took this a sign of good fortune and thus settled in the place they named "Lucbán."Local governmentMunicipal officials: Mayor: Celso Olivier T.
