Sinulog 2012

Sinulog 2012 was pretty good. I mean, it did not rain that much although there were a few times where it poured in some raindrops but other than that. It was all good. The weather did shower a few strong raindrops late afternoon when my legs were already so tired from walking too much since morning.

It was also the first time in my life that I attended the Sinulog mass during that day. By the way, the Sinulog Festival in Cebu Philippines always happens on the 3rd Sunday of January and it is an annual festival to commemorate the Cebuano people's acceptance of Roman Catholicism.

(From Wikipedia) The Sinulog celebration lasts for nine days, culminating on the final day with the Sinulog Grand Parade. The day before the parade, the Fluvial Procession is held at dawn with a statue of the Santo Niño carried on a pump boat from Mandaue City to Cebu City, decked with hundreds of flowers and candles.

Usually the Sinulog Grand Parade always rains but luck was with us photographers this time. There was more sun than rain even if the forecasts said that it was supposed to rain hard that day. So thank you very much Senior Sto. Nino for the good weather overall.

Viva! Pit Senyor!
