Twenty contingents from Cebu City's barangays joined the Sinulog sa Barangay 2018, which was held at the Cebu City Sports Center Sunday, January 14.
The event was aired live by SunStar. Watch this video.
The contingent from Barangay Pasil was still able to perform in Sunday's event despite the fire that razed 300 houses in at least three sitios in the coastal village.
Roy Ponla, the group's choreographer, said more than 20 of his dancers and props men did not join the performance and opted to go home to check their respective families.
The fire broke out around 12:20 p.m. and it was declared under control almost three hours after. (With reports from Razel Cuizon of SunStar Cebu/SunStar Philippines)
