 Faithful and spectators watched the Grand Santacruzan that plied along General Aguinaldo Avenue, General MacArthur Avenue, General Romulo Avenue, P. Tuazon Street, and Times Square Avenue in Araneta City. The participating beauties offered a virtuous representation of their assigned titles to remind the public of the religious and cultural relevance of this Catholic tradition.
A significant Philippine tradition held every May, the Santacruzan tells the story of how Queen Helena, the mother of Eastern Roman Emperor Constantine, found the Holy Cross during a pilgrimage to the Holy Land. The procession depicts Queen Helena (or Reina Elena) holding a crucifix and accompanied by her young son. They are joined in the procession by other women who represent other important biblical characters like Queen Esther, Veronica, Mary Magdalene, and others.
