Mister Puerto Rico 2015 Fernando Alvarez will join the Sinulog float parade on January 17.

He was chosen by Psalmstre Enterprises chief executive officer Jim Acosta to play the role of Portuguese explorer Ferdinand Magellan, who led the Spaniards in conquering the islands of Cebu.

He will join Pasion de Amor leading man Ejay Falcon and half-Visayan beauty queen and Miss Earth-Air 2012 Stephany Stefanowitz, who will be playing the roles of Datu Lapu-Lapu and Reyna Bulakna, respectively, on board the company’s galleon-themed float.

Fernando, who is a senior accountancy student at the University of Puerto Rico, represented his country to the Mister International 2015 pageant held in Manila, where he reached an admirable Top 10 finish, besides winning two corporate awards: Mister New Placenta and Mister Diamond Star.

The Coamo, Puerto Rico native, has Spanish traces in his bloodstreams, which made him perfect for the role of Magellan.

“This is a very wonderful opportunity for me to join the much-talked-about Sinulog festival. Puerto Rico has many religious festivals, too, but Sinulog is known all over the world, so this adds my excitement to participate. I am always grateful to Mr. Jim Acosta for making this happen. I am just so blessed. I always do my best for God, for my country Puerto Rico, and for my second home, the Philippines. To all Cebuanos, I’m so excited to meet you all very soon,” Alvarez said.
