LakbayLoyd Fiesta Series : The Spectacular SINULOG FESTIVAL of CEBU CITY

This is all about witnessing the 2015 Sinulog Festival for the second time. My first Sinulog in 2007 was so remarkable I made a promise to be part of this big event again where everyone devotedly celebrate and pay homage in honor of their Patron Saint Sto. Niño.

Held every third week of January, Cebu City hosts the grandest and the most extravagant festivals in the Philippines - the Sinulog Festival. It's Cebu City's fiesta of fiestas, and considered as the country's queen of all festivals.It's a festival of colors and ritual dancing distinguished by it's unusual two-steps-forward-and-one-step-backward choreography - dancing in elegant costumes in vibrant colors to the beat of the drums shouting "Pit Senor!" and "Viva Senior Niño".

There a lot of activities to see and enjoy in the entire duration of the festival. There's the Short Film Festival, Photo Contest, cultural shows, street fair and street dance parties with live bands, fireworks display, the Sinulog Festival Queen pageant - and a lot more.

The festival culminates with two big events participated and witnessed by all Cebuanos, local and foreign tourists, and devotees from all over the country - the Solemn Procession of the Miraculous Image of Sto. Niño and The Sinulog Grand Parade, the highlights of the festivity and are both held on the last Saturday and Sunday consecutively.

Here are the highlights of my unforgettable Sinulog 2015 experience.
