Kicking off the festivity was a grand procession featuring Reyna Elena, the embodiment of Queen Helena, and her consort, Constantine. Adorned in resplendent gowns and intricate crowns, they were accompanied by sagalas (muses), symbolizing various virtues, characters, and figures from the Christian narrative. The parade wound through the mall’s main atrium, culminating in a grand spectacle on the fifth floor.
