Sinulog is a nine-day religious festival but the main celebrations take place over the third weekend in January with the main parade taking place on the final Sunday of that weekend. It is held in honor of St Nino(infant Jesus) and the atmosphere is electric with whole communities getting involved in the event with the build up to that final weekend. After a solemn procession and church services, Cebu's streets erupt into a blaze of colour, music and dance as revelers give themselves over to religious fervor. From the very young to the very old, everyone participates in the Sinulog dance creating a truly incredible atmosphere. Other events during the nine days include contests, cultural shows, food exhibitions and a fluvial parade. One of the biggest celebrations in Cebu, the event attracts revelers and religious devotees from all over the world.
