Sinulog, which started in the 1980s, is one of the biggest festivals in the Philippines, held yearly in reverence for the Santo Niño (the Child Jesus).
 
 
It is celebrated every third Sunday of January in Cebu, as the Portuguese navigator Magellan first came to Cebu when he introduced Christianity in the country. 
 
 
Many different activities have been added to the traditional religious celebrations, among which sports and contests. There is a very detailed calendar of all the activities on this website (the official website of the Sinulog)
 
A Short Film Festival carrying a contest for the best Sinulog Film and best Sinulog Video Documentary is also organized.
 
Sinulog is definitely a festival to be enjoyed with the eyes. Costumes are wonderful and colorful. Beautiful photos that were taken for the last few years are available here.

 

 
 
Good look to all the participants and Happy Celebration to you!
