Sinulog Festival 2013 Schedule Of Activities

Sinulog Festival Parade

For the last 3 years, I have been planning to set my foot on the Queen City of the South. But due to some twist of fate, I haven’t been able to do so. Last year, I was able to book a one way ticket to Cebu from Manila but I booked a wrong flight. The Sinulog parade happens every 3rd weekend of January and I booked my ticket on the 4th. FAIL!

With just barely 2 weeks before the parade, I am still hoping to see this grand festival and of course to visit Cebu. Now I’m thinking if I ever had a friend living in Cebu that I can tag along to see the parade, or perhaps who could offer me a place to stay for a few days.. lols..

Nevertheless, for those who are GOING to experience the Sinulog Festival 2013, here’s the line up of activities.
