At least 50 decorated fishing bancas [local boats] joined the first La Virgen Milagrosa fluvial parade in the waters of Badoc in Ilocos Norte. Devotees from the province attended the concelebrated mass at St. John the Baptist Church here, and after the mass, the image of the Blessed Virgin Mary travelled in the shoreline of La Virgen Milagrosa Cove. Badoc mayor Maximo Cajigal and Badoc Parish Priest Rev. Father Frederick Astudillo assisted La Virgen Milagrosa in her banca, while, provincial officials and Miss Ilocos Norte pageant candidates joined in their respective fishing boats. Local spectators united by praying the rosary while the fluvial procession sailed along the cove. The event highlighted the last of the nine-day novena in honor of the province’s patron saint, La Virgen Milagrosa de Badoc.
