The Giant Balloon Parade in Manila: BGC Passion Parade

The BGC Passion Parade started last Saturday, May 28 at Bonifacio High Street. We almost changed our minds and planned not to go there anymore because of the heavy rain the whole Saturday morning and afternoon. But I really wanted to witness the First Ever Giant Balloon Parade in Manila so we didn’t mind anymore the rain and immediately went to “The Fort” Bus terminal going East Route. Good thing, the rain stopped just before the parade started. :)
It didn’t disappoint us, the parade was spectacular! It started along 9th avenue. Here are some of the photos taken during the parade.

Of course, the fun was not over yet I have to go around and take a picture with my favorite Sculptured Balloons.

Overall, it was great event. I heard that they will be adding two more giant balloons on June 4.
See you there!

The BGC Passion Parade will hit the road of Bonifacio High Street along 9th, 7th and 11th streets on May 28 and June 4, 5pm
