Thousands of supporters of Vice President Leni Robredo and her running mate, Senator Kiko Pangilinan are gearing up to turn the Emerald Avenue in the Ortigas business district in Pasig City into a massive gathering area as the Leni-Kiko Grand People’s Rally takes place tonight.

Photos of pink flowers adorning the area and fuchsia streamers hanging in the air as volunteers set up the 500-meter stretch, typically one of the busiest roads in the Ortigas area have made the rounds on social media.

The Pasig City government typically closes Emerald Avenue on weekends and converts it into an “open public space” where pedestrians can walk, jog, and exercise.

Pink flowers adorned the area and fuchsia streamers hung in the air as the event anticipates tens of thousands of supporters from Pasig City to rally behind the Leni-Kiko ticket.

The Pasig rally is anticipated to rival the crowd number in nearby Quezon City — 20,000 supporters convened at the Quezon City memorial circle for a Leni-Kiko “people’s rally” in February.

Celebrities on social media have shown their support, with host Robi Domingo confirming his presence in tonight’s event.

Robredo-Pangilinan rallies across the nation have been picking up steam — the sortie in Bacolod alone drew an estimated 70,000 supporters, reportedly the largest crowd that the ticket has seen so far.
