The reigning titleholders also waved to the crowd in a separate float.

The Parade of Beauties is the last major activity of the candidates before the grand coronation on March 15 at the Araneta Coliseum. Prior the parade, the ladies took part in a fashion show, showing of their national costumes by the country's top designers, and casual wear by JAG, one of the pageant's sponsors. 

Last February 17, the candidates were introduced to the media at the Sofitel Philippine Plaza. The candidates also showcased their talents last February 14 at Farmers Plaza. An exhibit of the ladies' swimsuit photos can also be seen at Gateway Mall. –Rappler.com
