The different stages of preparation and cooking empanada were depicted at the street pageantry. It started from planting and harvesting rice and mongo, grating papaya, sausage making, catching eggs, rice dough making to cooking empanada. They all danced to the uniform music of Empanada adopting dance steps from cooking empanada.
This part of the program was participated in by college students, youth groups and adults alike. Not much difference was seen from last year’s celebration. The only thing I noticed was that there were many floats paraded around this time.
