James Zimmerman, chair of the Committee of the Pamulak sa Kadayawan for this year, said that this year's event went well with floats becoming more impressive.

The best part was it finished before noon.

"Yes na-achieve naman, the only problem is there are groups who did not follow instructions. The instructions say that they can only bring 30 walking contingents and they brought 300 walking contingents," Zimmerman said.

This year, there were 13 contingents for the alternative category and 14 contingents for the traditional category.
