IN PHOTOS: Bb Pilipinas 2016 Parade of Beauties
MANILA, Philippines – As coronation night approaches, the 40 candidates of Binibining Pilipinas are very busy with the roster of activities. This Saturday, April 9, the ladies all participated in the annual Parade of Beauties in Cubao, Quezon City.
The parade began at the Novotel Manila Araneta Center and concluded at the Smart Araneta Coliseum. All candidates wore swimsuits by Pegarro Swim.
Three of the reigning queens – Bb Pilipinas Supranational Rogelie Catacutan, Bb Pilipinas International Janicel Lubina, and Miss Intercontinental first runner-up Christi McGarry also took part in the parade.
The Parade of Beauties is the last major activity of the candidates before the grand coronation night on April 17. The ladies were formally introduced to the press last March 29, before a fashion show, where they showcased the national costume designs of the country's top designers and casual wear by JAG, one of the pageant's sponsors.
Miss Universe 2015 Pia Wurtzbach is expected to arrive next week with a press conference scheduled days before the big night.
Here are photos of the ladies at the parade.
