    One of the highlights of St. Paul University Dumaguete’s Foundation Week celebration was its awe-inspiring grand parade and band exhibition. The 114th Annual Foundation week celebration grand parade began at Epifanio Surban Street Dumaguete City at around 3 o’clock in the afternoon last 26th of October 2018. Roads were closed prior to the parade and Dumaguete City’s traffic enforcers said traffic conditions were expected to be heavy downtown. Included in the parade were the ever-supportive SPC sisters, the faculty and students wearing their department T-shirts, the elegant and good-looking contestants of the 2018 Mr. and Ms. Ambassadors of Goodwill. The university marching band, together with their majorette, has been a regular and much-anticipated participant in the annual parade with the active involvement of the marching bands from the different schools in the city. Together with them were the SPUD alumni coming from the different batches, including the Silver Jubilarians and Platinum Anniversarians, the Marshalls, the Negros Oriental Red Cross Unit, Colors and Paramilitary Unit, other clubs and organizations of the university like the Paulinian Student Government, Photographers Guild, Guidance Buddies, Red Cross Youth, and The Paulinian. The parade was enlivened by the “Banda Mangga” which gave a convivial and festive atmosphere to the celebration. The parade ended at the SPUD ballfield where the invited marching bands and majorettes of Tanjay National High School, Piapi National High School, Negros Oriental High School, and the SPUD pride marching band showed off a brief but much-awaited exhibition.

    When interviewed about the grand parade, majority of the alumni felt warmly welcomed and appreciative of the never-ending homey that SPUD gives.
