The Metro Manila Film Festival held its annual parade of stars but with a twist this year. This time, the stars cruised down the Pasig River in boats made up as floats representing their respective films competing in this year’s festival.
The rain might have delayed the event, but it did not stop the fans from showing support for their idols despite weather conditions.

Due to the inclement weather, some of the stars weren’t able to make it to the fluvial parade while others attended the post-parade event held at Circuit Makati for their fans.
Kapamilya stars present during the event were Jeremiah Lisbo, Kaori Oinuma, Daniela Stranner, and Anthony Jennings for the film Love at First Stream. Chinita Princess Kim Chiu was also present along with the other cast members of Huwag Kang Lalabas.
