According to Gov. Wilhelmino M. Sy-Alvarado, aside from the fun and color that it adds to the celebration, the said activity will also able to showcase to the Bulakenyos and other tourists the exceptional arts and culture of the province of Bulacan.
“Maraming maipagmamalaki ang ating lalawigan na marapat lamang masaksihan hindi lamang ng mga dayuhang turista ngunit lalo’t higit ng mga Bulakenyo nang sa gayon ay maging maalam sila sa makulay at mayamang sining at kultura ng kanilang sariling bayan. Kaya naman inaanyayahan ko ang lahat na makiisa at panoorin ang Parada ng mga Karosa,” Alvarado said.
Aside from the floats, the candidates of the Hari at Reyna ng Bulacan competition as well as some drum and lyre band in the province will also join the parade.
