Filipinos flock to Tagaytay on Maundy Thursday

Filipinos have flocked to Tagaytay to spend Maundy Thursday away from the bustle of Metro Manila.

According to Ian Cruz's report on "24 Oras," almost all establishments in the city are full of guests including the Picnic Grove, where families and groups of friends did various activities.

Apart from feasting on food, some went on the zipline, went horseback riding, and flew their kites.

Some also went to churches such as the Our Lady of Lourdes for the Stations of the Cross and the Visita Iglesia. One of these is the family of Juancho Cruz, who stopped doing so for two years amid the pandemic.

"'Yung faith namin, 'yung service namin kay Lord, 'yon 'yung pilit naming tinutupad every Holy Week [Our faith, service to the Lord, that's what we try to do every Holy Week]," he said.

While some have travelled all the way to Tagaytay City, there are some who chose to stay in the metro, according to Sandra Aguinaldo's report.

Many people went to the Quezon City Memorial Circle and the Luneta Park for the holiday.
