The caracol is basically a festivity on boats. Beautiful ladies and handsome gentlemen ride in decorated boats and parade along the Parañaque river. A musical band plays at the end of the procession with the hermana and hermano mayors (sponsors) in one of the boats waving and smiling to all. Fruits like corn, chico, mango and santol are thrown by the hermanas to the other boats and to those swimming to cause chances inside the boats.

Flores de Mayo
A procession of young pretty girls escorted by local gentlemen. The last lady, usually the loveliest and best attired, represents Sta. Elena (Queen Helena) with her son Constantine as the escort holds a crucifix symbolizing the cross of Christ.
The root word, 'sundo', means 'to fetch'. The tradition was originally a parade of the loveliest gowns (called ternos) made by the better known couturiers in Manila. The ladies' escort, before entering the lady's house, was made to wait for some time. Hence, the lady deliberately makes the men wait. To hasten the ladies, a marching band would be called in to play.
