I will be in the proud land of Cebu this coming January 19 – 21 2007 with friends to shoot the annual Sinulog
The days where I will be there are those days where the processions and more street parties are held. You can check the schedule here.
The Sinulog festival is one of the grandest and most colorful festivals in the Philippines. The main festival is held each year on the third Sunday of January in Cebu City to honor the Santo NiÃ±o, 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. – WikiPedia
I’d appreciate help from bloggers on neat places to go to, since I will only be there for a very short time. I guess most of the time will be spent shooting the parade and the celebration.
