City di Mare hosts Cebu’s Sinulog Festival for the 2nd year

Every year during January, Cebu draws in an average of 500,000 guests from all over the  world to celebrate one of the country’s biggest and most popular festivals, the Sinulog  Festival – a vibrant celebration that consists of colorful costumes, fluvial parades, and  endless music to honor the image of the Child Jesus – Sto. Niño de Cebu.

This year, the festivity is grander and more colorful as City Di Mare, the 58-hectare  premier coastal township along South Road Properties (SRP), celebrated the Sinulog Festival for the second time as it welcomed Cebuanos and tourists alike with the  culmination of the Sinulog festivities at CDM’s 3-hectare Events Grounds.  

With 30 percent of its property dedicated to open and green spaces, CDM has been the  best go-to destination for various outdoor events that the community can partake post pandemic – from concerts such as the Aurora Festival and Summer Pop Up featuring  popular OPM and homegrown artists; sporting competitions like runs, endurance races  and dragon boat competitions to festivities, including the Sinulog Festival.

CDM, with its accessible location, is only 21km away from Mactan-Cebu International  Airport, 7km away from the newly opened Cebu-Cordova Link Expressway, and 6.6km from Cebu City. It is centered within major thoroughfares like the Cebu South Coastal  Road that plies Mandaue and Talisay, and Imus Avenue in Cebu City. Furthermore, the  dedicated shuttle buses to CDM allow public access to SRP while improving foot traffic  and increasing business investment in the district.

Additionally, CDM’s location offers a very strategic advantage with SRP poised to become  the new economic hub in Cebu that is backed by significant government investments and  the relocation of local government offices. Various real estate investment opportunities  are also opening in the district with Filinvest Land Inc. continuously developing CDM,  touted as the largest master-planned, integrated city in the district where all essential  needs – be it retail, dining, rest or commute – are all within reach. Within the township are  various residential projects, like Amalfi and San Remo, for anyone considering relocating or looking for an investment option in South Road Properties. 

Apart from the residential clusters, CDM also houses the IL Corso Filinvest Mall, the only  shopping and dining development by the sea where Sinulog Festival attendees explored retail and dining options during the exciting three-day festival.
