Crowds went wild as celebrities joined the annual “Parade of Stars” on December 21. It jumpstarted this year’s Metro Manila Film Festival (MMFF). 

Braving the afternoon heat, stars of the eight official entries traveled 7.36 kilometers from Mabuhay Rotonda to Quezon City Circle with an estimated travel time of 2 hours and 30 minutes atop their creative floats. 

The parade is a yearly MMFF tradition to invite the movie-going public to watch all the eight entries. 

Take a look at the stars and their floats this year.
