Police estimate a crowd of 150,000 attended the Traslacion in today’s procession for the Feast of the Black Nazarene in Cagayan de Oro City.
Held for the first time at dawn, the procession proceeded without much trouble as the event did not affect vehicular traffic due to the time of procession. The activity began last night with a vigil at the Pelaez Sports Complex.
The procession started before sunrise today.
A light rain did not dampen the spirits of the devotees who came from all over Mindanao.
By 7:00AM, the procession had already reached Nazareno Church along CM Recto Avenue as shown below.
