Araneta City opens Bb Pilipinas 2022 activities with Grand Santacruzan

Araneta City kicks off the much-awaited return of the traditional Binibining Pilipinas activities at the City of Firsts with a Grand Santacruzan on Saturday, May 14, 2022.

This year's event features the 40 Binibining Pilipinas 2022 candidates, the Binibining Pilipinas 2021 queens, and Miss International 2005 Precious Lara Quigaman in a colorful procession of religio-historical titles at the City of Firsts.


Rev. Father Ronnie Santos (from Our Lady of Perpetual Help Parish) led the blessing and opening of the Grand Santacruzan with a Holy Mass at the Smart Araneta Coliseum.

A significant Philippine tradition held every May, the Santacruzan tells the story of how Queen Helena, the mother of Eastern Roman Emperor Constantine, found the Holy Cross during a pilgrimage to the Holy Land. The procession depicts Queen Helena (or Reina Elena) holding a crucifix and accompanied by her young son. They are joined in the procession by other women who represent other important biblical characters like Queen Esther, Veronica, Mary Magdalene, and others.
