QUEZON, Philippines – A heavy downpour fell on Sunday, August 19, but it didn't dampen the locals' spirits.
On Sunday, the Quezon provincial government held the Grand Float Parade on the 11th day of the Niyogyugan Festival, which aims to promote the coconut industry as well as other products and local delicacies.
It started raining 30 minutes into the parade, but the dancers didn't stop, as they traveled all the way to the capitol for the main show.
