The host district, Nueva Ecija South, carefully prepared for the opening ceremony and other activities as a whole.  The Opening of festivities starts with parade of a HUGE   INC Unity Games  flag and standards bearing the colors and names of all 16 participating districts which are carried by our brethren from Nueva Ecija South. They are followed by the parade of athletes from 4 participating districts.  The opening prayer is led by the assistant district minister of Nueva Ecija South while the opening remark is given by the district minister also of Nueva Ecija South. It is also noted that all throughout the activities small plane fly over the venue to drop confetti and drop skydivers, one of the highlights of the ceremony. The skydivers flew from thousands feet up the sky. As they land, Iglesia Ni Cristo flag and  INC Unity Games  flag proudly wave with them. Our skydivers, which are all members of the Church, accurately land to their target spot that impressed all the participants and audiences.
