    I’ve been here 3 times already and every time I go there I always have things/activities to do there. Their City is highly urbanized maybe that’s one of the reasons why people still go back to Cebu. Sinulog Festival is one of the reasons why I like to go back there 🙂 # Advertising

  12. The event ended with a BANG! Enjoyed so much especially the LAMHITANAY part in Kabankalan City Plaza… definitely will be back next year… next will be the DINAGSA festival in Cadiz City 🙂

  13. This is really great! It would be nice to be able to watch and see the performers live.

  14. I have not see or been to Cebu when the Sinulug festival is going. I bet it is fun and memorable to watch.

  15. The best place to go on a trip to this place because it is the time of the festive.
