Cebu Sinulog Festival 16 Jan 2011

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 Niño, or the child Jesus, who used to be the patron saint of the whole province of Cebu (since in the Catholic faith Jesus is not a saint, but God). It is essentially a dance ritual which remembers the Filipino people’s pagan past and their acceptance of Christianity. This was Sunday 16 Jan 2011. There was the Miss Cebu Pageant, Parade, Vie for the Elegant Crown of Sinulog Festival Queen.
