Sunday’s rainy weather didn’t stop the Central Alberta Filipino queens from putting on a show in Red Deer.
The third annual Santacruzan parade and celebration was scheduled to take part at Bower Ponds but the weather forced the change in venue to the Parkland Mall.
More than 30 girls and their escorts walked around Parkland Mall commemorating the search of the crucifix by Queen Reyna Elena and her son Constantine the Great.
Santacruzan is celebrated in all towns and cities in all parts of Philippines. The event was hosted by the Global Filipino Canadian Cultural Society.
