If there is an event that is being unfailingly attended by millions of people in the Philippines annually, that must be the Feast of the Black Nazarene. Tomorrow, 9th of January 2016, after a long and deliberate preparation, the much-awaited happening will betide where millions of staunch Catholic devotees from all over the Philippines, and even from other countries, are expected to take part on this religious activity. Make sure to get yourself ready as you step out of your home and pursue whatever errands it may be by anticipating tomorrow's road traffic through this road closure and detours advisory.
