Thousands of people trooped to Quezon City's most popular food hub, plates were flying in and out of the kitchen (well, not literally, we think), and then the rest, as they say, is history.

On the eve of Quezon City's 75th Diamond Jubilee, the entire 2.165 kilometer length of Maginhawa Street—from Masaya to Makadiyos—was closed to motorists and dotted with food stalls.

Attendees were in for a number of free treats: from the sweetest ice cream to the grandest pyrotechnic show.

Pasta overload, anyone?

This street was made for eating, and eating, and more eating.
