Sinulog Festival in Cebu

January is a festive month next to December in the Philippines. Aside from celebrating the New Year, it's the time when most of the islands have their colorful festivals like the Sinulog Festival in Cebu.

The Sinulog festival is one of the grandest and most colorful festivals in the Philippines with a very rich history. The main festival is held each year on the third Sunday of January in Cebu City to honor the Santo NiƱo, or the child Jesus, who is the patron saint of the whole province of Cebu.

The festival features some the country’s most colorful displays of pomp and pageantry: participants garbed in bright-colored costumes dance to the rhythm of drums, trumpets, and native gongs. The streets are usually lined with vendors and pedestrians all wanting to witness the street-dancing.
