The event will also feature a cultural parade that gives a miniature glimpse of famous Filipino festivals, including the Ati-atihan Festival, the MassKara Festival, the Moriones Festival, the Dinagyang Festival, the Panagbenga Festival, and the Sinulog Festival.

Traditional Filipino music and dance, as well as bright colours from performers and their costumes, can be expected at this year’s festivities.
