The Philippines: Flores de Mayo in Manila

Flores de Mayo is a festival that we celebrate in the Philippines for the whole month of May. This is how we show our devotions to the Blessed Mother Mary.

Through out the month of May, you will encounter the procession all over the Philippines.

What to do if you see the procession?

  • Pray- give thanks for all the blessings you receive.
  • Enjoy the walk. The walk can take you lot of kilometers. So better wear comfortable shoes.
  • Listen to the band’s music.
  • Be with family and friends.
  • Appreciate the culture.
  • Show respect.
