A foot parade commenced the secular activities. The parade was attended by the community and each college was represented by a float that depicted the best of each college. After the parade, a demonstration of dances were presented at the university amphitheater. The program started with the pre-elementary pupils and faculty in their Hawaiian-inspired dance. The different colleges presented their different faces of dances. Dean Nieves Pepito of CAS; Dr. Clifford Salugsugan of CB&A; Dr. Ofelia Posecion of CoED and Engr. Christopher Taclobos danced with their respective students and gave moiré flavor to their presentations.
