Viva Manila's Intramuros Pasyal Sunday 2014

Viva Manila, a citizen-led project to revive Manila is organizing a monthly, free car free event that features local artisans, performers, and neighborhood businesses in the aim of reviving the livability and creativity of Old Manila neighborhoods, as well empowering local skills and talent dubbed as Pasyal Sundays.

This summer it will be held on March 16, April 27, and May 25, 2014 along General Luna Street, Intramuros. The March edition's theme is "Speak Out!" wherein we will be hosting an open poetry slam, as well as various workshops, and performances to encourage sharing of thoughts, ideas, and opinions that can hopefully inspire others to know and care more about Manila and the people in it. For more information you can check their Facebook Fan Page here.--------

Grand Marian Procession of 100 Images of the Blessed Virgin

Grand Marian Procession of 100 Images of the Blessed Virgin

Every first Sunday of December, Intramuros celebrates the Feast of the Immaculate Concepcion with the  Grand Marian Procession of one hundred images of the  Blessed Virgin, a tradition that started in 1619. 

Organized by Cofradia de la Inmaculada Concepcion Foundation and Intramuros Foundation, hundreds of images of the Virgin Mary will be showcased coming from different parts of the country.

The Grand Marian Procession will start in front of the Manila Cathedral, 4PM on Dec. 1, 2013. It is expected that this will cause a bit of traffic along Andres Soriano Jr. Ave (Aduana) so motorists are advised to take P. Burgos Drive and Bonifacio Drive as alternative routes.
