Sinulog Festival is a religious celebration that commemorates the Filipinos' acceptance of Christianity and to honor Senyor Sto. Niño. A lot of locals and international tourists converged in the beautiful city of Cebu to witness this glamorous event.

During the festival, you can find locals in colorful costumes, dancing to the rhythm of drums and native gongs. You would also entertain in different activities such as float parade, fluvial procession, beauty pageant, bazaars, and concerts.

Along the streets, some locals and tourists are shouting “Pit Señor! Señor Santo Niño. This action is necessary for the pilgrims in a belief that they will be heard by the Santo Niño. This is their way to ask petitions and thanksgivings to the Santo Niño.
