IN PHOTOS: Celebs we spotted at the MMFF 2019 Parade of Stars

MANILA, Philippines – The Metro Manila Film Festival (MMFF) Parade of Stars 2019 kicked off at around midday on Sunday, December 22.

The parade kicked off from Lakeshore Taguig and passed through Bonifacio Global City, with the stars of each of the competing films greeting bystanders and fans from atop their respective floats.

For many fans, this was their once-in-a-lifetime chance to see their beloved stars in person – and they turned up in numbers to say hello.
