Fluvial Procession 2010

Again, sorry for this late post. I was supposed to post this before the Sinulog Grand Parade last week but I got really busy. I hope you understand (that is, if someone is actually waiting for these photos. Hahahaha.)

Anyways, here are the photos of the Fluvial Procession held last January 16. It was a very cold and rainy morning but the crowd was just fantastic. More people actually joined the procession this year despite the weather.

Viva Senyor Santo Niño. Pit Senyor, everyone!


Pit Senyor, kang tatay kini!
