Sto. Niño’s Fluvial Parade in GenSan

I was privileged to be a witness to the Fluvial Parade of Barangay Bula this morning which is part of their celebration of their 30th Patronal Fiesta in honor of the Sto. Niño. (See my earlier post entitled “Barangay Bula pays homage to Sto. Niño”) I was at the Queen Tuna Park (formerly Lion’s Beach) together with hundreds of devotees waiting for the arrival of the image of the patron saint on board a vessel owned by this year’s fiesta Hermano Mayor, fishing magnate Marfin Tan.These are the images caught by my wandering camera.
