Winners of the ‪Sinulog 2016‬ Grand Parade in Cebu


Wazzup Pilipinas!

The Sinulog festival is celebrated every 3rd weekend of January. The city of Cebu becomes host to colorful parades, captivating music, and impressive street parties of which the grandest celebration via a parade is held at the very last Sinulog Sunday!

Vice President Jejomar Binay was booed when he spoke on stage during the Sinulog Grand Parade last January 17 But he claimed it was the handiwork of his political opponents. Never campaign in the Sinulog festivities. 

Cebuanos are very particular of the cultural practice. Binay was the only candidate who dared along side other recognizable individuals like Gringo Honasan who was also running for Senator. Binay got the price he deserved for not respecting the said religious feast in honor of the Patron Saint Snr. Sto. Nino.

But who cares about these political exploits of government officials who are obviously only after the authority, power and financial gains. No one would even dare running for an office if the true sense of public servant will be implemented religiously.

Yet how would you expect that from politicians who couldn't even respect religious rites.

For more positive news, below are the winners of the Sinulog competitions.
