Check out the sights and sounds from your favorite athletes' participation in the annual "Wattah Wattah Festival" in San Juan.
The Wattah Wattah Festival of San Juan is famous for its quite literal, as well as fun, celebration of St. John the Bapist's feast day every June 24.
Faith for the city's patron saint was in full display Sunday afternoon, as thousands of drenched people crowded the streets joined the annual 'cleansing'.
Among those soaked devotees were star athletes like University of the Philippines' Ricci Rivero, Rain or Shine Elastopainter James Yap, Magnolia Hotshots' Marc Pingris, as well as ONE Championship heavyweight king Brandon Vera, and more.
They all joined the 'Basaan Festival' to the delight of their fans, and the people of San Juan.
