‘Di inabot ng umaga! Isko Moreno hails new record as Traslacion 2020 ends in 16 hours


Manila Mayor Isko Moreno is happy that the procession of the image of the Black Nazarene, called the Traslacion, lasted for only 16 hours this year.

Moreno hailed the “record breaking” procession in a tweet posted January 9.

“Traslacion 2020 ends after more than 16 hours. This is record breaking in recent years!” he said.

The traslacion lasted for more than 20 hours over the four years. In 2019, it took the image 21 hours before reaching Quiapo Church.

The image of the Black Nazarene left Quirino Grandstand at around 4:20 a.m. Thursday, catching devotees by surprise since the thought the procession will start past 5 p.m.

The andas carrying the religious image reached Quiapo Church before 9 p.m.
