Sinulog Festival + Tips

To all Cebuanos, Viva Pit Senyor!

  The most awaited celebration for all  Cebuanos and tourist alike is here once more – The Sinulog Festival. 


“Sinulog is a dance ritual in honor of the miraculous image of the Santo Nino. The dance moves to the sound of the drums and this resembles the current (Sinulog) of what was then known as Cebu’s Pahina River. Thus, in Cebuano, they say it’s Sinulog.” source. Learn and Read more Here

6th Place – Jay Ybanez

The sound of the drums makes your heart pound with excitement, you can’t help it but dance to the beat.
Street dancers wear beautiful and bright costumes.

1st Place – Christine Entone

There are “higante” (Giant/paper mache/puppeteers) which fascinates me since I was a child.

I cannot forget the parade of local artists from Cebu (Teban, Goliat and tsokolet). My mother always look out for Actors/Actresses from Manila, I know, I know most of you are too.

You will also be amazed of the different float designs. I love watching the banderitas and the Giant Christmas tree in Fuente Circle.

Street Party and Concert of local bands are everywhere. So, prepare for some partying ’till morning.

Check out the following for more information.

Sinulog is never complete without the 9 days Novena, Walk with Jesus, Solemn procession, Fluvial procession and the Sinulog Parade. Millions of devotees come here everyday. Sr. Sto. Nino is the patron Saint of Cebu and is believed to be miraculous.
