A street dancer performs at the annual Grand Santo Nino Procession in Manila, yesterday. The procession features almost 300 floats with different images of child Jesus Christ flown in from various parts of the country. The Philippines is Asia’s bastion of Catholicism and the Sto Nino feast is one among dozens of festivals honouring various saints and religious icons, a legacy of three centuries of Spanish rule.
