Our Lady of Peñafrancia

All roads lead to Naga City, Camarines Sur for the yearly celebration of the Feast of the Virgin of Peñafrancia - miraculous patroness of the Bicol Region. This year marked the 300th year of the feast, and Mr. Iggy was among the millions who flocked to that part of South Luzon to pay honor to the virgin whom the Bicolanos fondly call "Ina" ("Mother"). During her feast day, pilgrims gather at her shrine to pay her homage for favors and blessings received. Mr. Iggy certainly has a lot to thank her for this year! Viva la Virgen!
