Flores de Mayo

Yesterday, Sunday, I was driving from a shopping mall in Dagupan to my house in Sta. Barbara and encountered on the highway a procession in barangay Tuliao.

I parked on the road shoulder and made the below pictures.

Later my sister in law told me that this is done in many cities / barangays as a celebration of the new season, the season of flowers (of May) called "Flores de Mayo". It is like we have in the Netherlands, called "Bloemen corso", but I haven't seen a lot of flowers, but lovely girls and women in nice dresses.

See the pictures bellow...

Of course a cross in front, this is Philippines!

Little girls first ...
