Finally, the most awaited event of the year. I have always been wanting to experience this event ever since I saw the live coverage some 5 years ago. And now, I was really there! Finally experience the intoxicating wonders of this event. Listen to the incredible sounds of the drums and dance to their beat! At the middle of all the drum beats, the dancing, the colorful costumes and the loud shouting: Hey Señor! Viva Señor!
The Sinulog buzz is in the air as bazaars have finally lined up the streets and selling everybody’s favorite goods. We can all see (and feel) it now. The sea of people, the addicting beats, the humid air, the sticky feel of sweat and the extreme excitement of spectators and Sinulog fans. Not to mention the stomach churning, eardrum busting music that fills the air throughout the day.
Yet every true-blue partygoer will confess that he wont mind the blaring music, the excruciating heat of the sun or the crushing sea of people. No – in fact, that’s what makes the event so great! Hundreds of people, one calling: Señor Sto. Niño.
Sure, everybody goes to the city to party but deep within that party thrive is a much deeper reason. To celebrate and give thanks to Señor Sto. Niño. People come from far and wide, filling the streets of Colon, Jones and the Abellana Sport’s Complex in search for the best spot and party among the rest of the Cebuanos.
