The procession started at 3 PM. Thousands of devotees from Cagayan de Oro and neighboring provinces attended this annual celebration.

Unlike the chaotic scene in Manila, Cagayan de Oro’s version is peaceful. Although it caused traffic especially in Osmena St. The Philippine National Police estimated that around 10,000 people joined the procession.

The image arrived at Nazareno Church at 7:10 in the evening. Even inside the church, the devotees jostled to get near the image of their patron.
