Philippines Local Customs: 242 reviews and 278 photos

In the Philippines, religious procession is a big event everywhere. These usually take place around the festive month of May. In many instances it is a community-wide activity. Its success matters most to the organizers. They would remember it lovingly for many years to come.

These gala is the time of the year when the loveliest and most attractive Filipino women participate by becoming queen, princess, dames and damsels of the parade. It is the time for parents to display the beauties of their daughters.

Recently, homosexuals have made their own version of the parade in a more riotous and multicolored display of femininity and glitter.
