Young ladies from various regions of the country will vie for the title of Festival Queen and a cash prize of P100,000 as the Reyna ng Aliwan pageant takes to the stage on Friday at 7:00 p.m. The show will also feature musical numbers by Christian Bautista and Jason Fernandez. The Grand Parade showcasing different festivals from north to south of the archipelago then takes place on Saturday, beginning at Quirino Grandstand and winding up in front of the Aliw Theater at the CCP Complex, where the formal awarding ceremonies will take place.
