Sinulog Festival 2014

Cebu Sinulog Festival

The Sinulog Festival is Cebu City's most popular and grandest festival. It is celebrated every 3rd Sunday of January in honor of the Señor Sto. Niño. Foreign and local tourists flock to Cebu City for this celebration and join the procession and the grand mardi gras. The Sinulog is a dance-prayer expressing devotion to the Holy Child. It is a popular belief among Cebuanos that this dance-prayer is the most effective way of getting favors from the Sto. Niño.
