MANILA, Philippines – The 2018 Metro Manila Film Festival (MMFF) Parade of Stars pushed through on Sunday, December 23 in Parañaque city, despite the gloomy weather.
The parade included floats featuring the 8 films competing in the MMFF: Fantastica: The Princess, The Prince, and The Perya, Poppy En Jack: The Puliscredibles, Girl in the Orange Dress, Aurora, Otlum, Mary, Marry Me, One Great Love, and Rainbow Sunset.
Heavy rain, however, caused a delay in the parade – several floats were stuck in mud at the holding area.
Some stars ditched their respective floats altogether and opted to join the parade aboard their own vehicles.

Heartbreaking, because I was so excited to do the parade after 10 years. Oh well. See you guys po sa ASEANA! On our way na with the whole cast! pic.twitter.com/U7RgRDriOd — Anne Curtis-Smith (@annecurtissmith) December 23, 2018
