Cebu Sizzles with Sinulog 2011!

January 10, 2011

Sinulog fever hits Cebu once again, and as our writer Richard A. Ramos reports, there’s more to catch than the grand parade on the 16th. The following is a partial list of activities set for the week leading up to the grand celebration:

  • January 12 (Wednesday): Miss Cebu Coronation Night, Waterfront Cebu City Hotel and Casino, 7 p.m.
  • January 13 (Thursday): Handumanan: The Concert (in honor of the balikbayan community), Ayala Center Cebu
  • January 14 (Friday): Sinulog Festival Queen selection, Cebu City Sports Center
  • January 15 (Saturday): Fluvial Procession of the Sto. Nino Image, 6 a.m.; Solemn Procession, 1:30 p.m.

Visitors are in for a slamming time as more exciting shows, concerts, exhibits, street parties and other events are set for the following days. A more complete schedule of activities can be found on the festival website, http://www.sinulog.ph. If you haven’t booked a room yet, do so now or risk missing out on what is said to be the country’s largest festival.

In the meantime, enjoy some amazing snapshots of last year’s celebration on Flickr, courtesy of the Sinulog 2010 photo contest winners.
