Many have witnessed this year’s most breathtaking view in the waters of Cebu today, January 18, 2020 — an annual event held every third Saturday of January (a day before Sinulog).
Hundreds of decorated boats, barges and yachts, a rain of confetti from helicopters, drum beats and the lively cheers are enough to put someone and every Sugboanon in the festive atmosphere.
The fluvial procession is an annual tradition that marks the start of the official Sinulog festival. Although it is a solemn event in sending Sto. Niño to visit his foster father, St. Joseph at the St. Joseph Parish in Mandaue City.
