December to January always seems like a crazy time of year in Cebu. There are all the parties and dinners leading up to Christmas, then a short lull before the New Year’s Celebration, followed by a frenzied preparation for the biggest festival in the country, Sinulog.

There’s more to the Sinulog festivities than just the parade. All sorts of events lead towards the grand parade. Don’t get lost in the festivities, try to experience as much as you can and make sure to get a Sinulog shirt.
