Let me just tell you how this started, before upon the arrival of the Spaniards in the Philippine territory a Portuguese explorer named Ferdinand Magellan give a gift to the locals queen "Lady Humamay". This gift supposedly mean as the symbol of the alliance with them, and this gift is the "Santo Niño". The Santo Niño statue is the crafted idea of Baby Jesus which many Filipino Catholics believed that it shows miraculous things like abundant harvest and many more that give benefits to the natives. So the natives offer a festival and promise to do this every year. Thus this considered as the start of the "Sinulog Festival".

Now we have the short history, so what can we expect this Sinulog 2013?

This can be notice right away the colorful "banderitas" around that gives more fiesta atmosphere. People prepare this ahead of time, know what it has been set-up first day of the month of December.

The parade go around the city until they end up to the Main Complex to execute their final dance. This goes with different categories and the best Sinulog Performance will take home 1 Million Pesos grand prize.
