REASONS TO LOVE SINULOG


27 REASONS TO LOVE SINULOG 2009

Despite the city rammed with the scorching heat, dehydrating distance walk, swarming individuals just to experience the most awaited Cebu City event. Honestly, you know as what they say? If you go to Sto. Nino church, that’s the core of the Sinulog. That's where you'll really feel and understand the Sinulog spirit and what it is all about. The faith of the Cebuanos is overwhelming and heartwarming. It is the fusion of religion, street fair, fun and people from the entire metro to the world as they returns home and congregates to pay homage for the feast of the miraculous image of the Santo Niño. On this festive mode, Joseph Bontilao of Sun.star Plus and Special haggled some of the balikbayan’s and locals whose devotion is endless, who shared their fond memories for this event on its 27th years and counting.

What's there not to love about it? apart from the Sinulog being the biggest festival in the country, its really all about the sense of community, pride and unwavering faith that emanates collectively from all Cebuanos in homage to the Señor Sto.Niño.
