MANILA—Thousands of devotees flocked to Quirino Grandstand for the annual vigil or "pahalik" of the Black Nazarene on Tuesday, a day before Traslacion.

Millions of devotees are expected to flock to Quiapo on Wednesday, January 9, to join the event in the belief that the image of the dark-skinned Jesus Christ has miraculous powers.

Last year, the Traslacion took 22 hours to weave through the streets of Manila and return to Quiapo Church.
