Published on : Friday, December 11, 2015

unnamed (1)Sinulog Festival is a significant festival in Philippines. The annual festival, held on the third Sunday of January, infuses both culture and religion.The festivals take place in Cebu City, one of the tourist towns that Philippines is home to. The festival celebrates the acceptance of Catholicism by locals, as well as the triumph of Christianity over secular religions that the country previously upheld. The festival also features a contest where attendants can take part in the various categories. These categories are grouped into three including the Sinulog Base group, The Free Interpretation as well as the Street Dancing Group.

 

The festival lasts nine days, and its culmination is marked with the Sinulog Grand Parade. This is perhaps the most elaborate part of the Sinulog Festival, and certainly a favourite for many visitors.

 

It’s more fun in the Philippines

Crescent-shaped beaches dusted with talcum powder-like sand; uninhabited tropical islands, lush impenetrable jungles bristling with unique wildlife, the thrusting soaring capital of Manila, historic cities, a diverse local cuisine and culture …the Philippines has all this and more. Go there and discover some of the 7,107 islands of this vibrant archipelago where English is widely spoken, the people are fun loving and life moves to a lilting beat.
