Grand procession in honor of La Naval de Manila October 17, 2018

Filipino Catholics mark the Feast of the Our Lady of the Holy Rosary La Naval de Manila every second Sunday of October.

The celebration is highlighted by a grand procession that attracted this year an estimated 30,000 devotees.

The first procession was celebrated on October 8, 1646, in Manila to mark the naval victory of the Spanish and Filipino Catholic forces against the invading Dutch fleet.
