San Fernando preserves Flores de Mayo rites

THE downtown streets of the City of San Fernando were filled with solemnity, beauty, and elegance, as the capital city staged the annual Flores de Mayo on May 18 in line with the celebration of Pyestang Fernandino 2019.

Flores de Mayo, a Catholic tradition of giving honor to the Blessed Virgin Mary through flower offering, was successfully carried out as the candidates of this year's Mutya at Lakan ning San Fernando participated by wearing Filipiniana gowns and "barong tagalog."

Also, the candidates for this year's Little Miss Fernandina and selected senior citizens from different villages in the city joined the activity.

Meanwhile, Binibining Pilipinas Globe 2018 Michelle Gumabao, graced this year's Flores de Mayo as the Reyna de las Flores or Queen of Flowers.

The activity was made possible through the efforts of the City Tourism Office in partnership with the SM City Downtown. (PR)
