Historic downtown Parian Cebu fiesta

Here are some pictures of the Fiesta celebration of historic downtown Cebu's Parian during the feast of its patron, St. John the Baptist. Mass was held at the Parian chapel, with three priests officiating.  The traditional procession around the neighborhood followed. It seemed to me that this time there were very many people who joined the procession or who watched from their homes.

After the procession, thirty-five friends and devotees gathered in the Dona Filomena building's rooftop for food, talk and laughter until way past midnight. Val Sandiego and Pepit Revilles also had dinner celebrations in their ancestral homes in the Parian.
