Participants, decorating their vehicles with red, white, blue and yellow balloons — the Philippines’ flag colours — made their way from City Hall through the downtown and up towards the Kam Lake area before meeting up again at the Fieldhouse.
The procession kicked off after a 5:30 flag-raising ceremony at City Hall, according to a Facebook post from the city.
City bylaw officers escorted vehicles across town.
This year’s annual June 12 celebration marks 122 years since the Philippines declared independence from Spain.
