Sinulog Festival (One Beat. One Dance. One Vision.)

The Sinulog is an annual cultural and religious festival held on the third Sunday of January in Cebu City, and is the center of the Santo Niñ0 celebration in the Philippines. Other places like Maasin City, Balingasag, Misamis Oriental and Southern Leyte also have their own version of the festival in honor of the Santo Nino.

The Sinulog festival commemorates the Filipino people’s pagan origins, and their acceptance of and conversion to Christianity (Roman Catholicism). The first of these conversions happened in the island province of Cebu when Rajah Humabon and his wife Hara Amihan were baptized and came to be known as Haring Carlos and Reyna Juana of Cebu.
