The most vibrant festival in the country makes a grand comeback. After the pandemic and Typhoon Odette, Sinulog makes its spectacular return this year.
"One Cebu Island Sinulog 2023," the "Queen of Philippine Festivals," is being celebrated in Cebu, the "Queen City of the South," with a flurry of activities. An example of "real and unique" Cebuano culture, Sinulog is an expression of Cebuanos and Filipinos' devotion to the Santo Niño.
Among the much-anticipated events are nightly shows at Plaza Independencia, Sinulog Idol, a fluvial procession, coronations for Miss Cebu 2023 and Sinulog Festival Queen, a re-enactment of Queen Juana and Rajah Humabon's Baptism at the Basilica Minore del Sto. Niño, and the Sinulog 2023 Fireworks Display and Competition.
The highlight, of course, is the Sinulog 2023 Grand Parade at the South Road Properties. On exciting display is the Sinulog dance moves, which are two steps forward and one step backward, as the dancers of various contingents sway to a distinct rhythm of drums. These graceful movements resemble the flow or current (sulog) of what was known as Cebu's Pahina River.
What was once a regional observance of piety and gratitude has turned into a national ceremony, then blossomed into an international affair with lots of socializing and merrymaking. As with any festivals in the Philippines, there will be lots of music and dancing all over.
Yes, Sinulog is indeed back with a vengeance, and joining in the music-filled revelry is WOW! Fiesta Videoke, a portable videoke system that will heighten the festive party mood in Cebu.
With its thousands of built-in songs, anyone can enjoy its wide repertoire of songs from the Latest Hits to Party Favorites, Duets, 90's, 80's and All-Time Hits for all ages.
WOW! Fiesta is right at home in Cebu, where some of the best Pinoy singers come from, such as Asia's Queen of Songs Pilita Corrales, vocal powerhouse Dulce, screen queens Manilyn Reynes and Vina Morales, singing champion Sheryn Regis, power belter Morissette Amon, and King of Visayan Songs Max Surban.
WOW! Fiesta products, such as the Melody 10 Wireless, let you have that #EverydayFiestaFeels singing experience. It has a high-quality sound and two professional digital wireless microphones. This would help you unleash your inner crooner ala JK Labajo; or like homegrown singing heartthrobs Bailey May, Matteo Guidicelli and Enrique Gil; and even sing like adopted daughters Sarah Geronimo and Donna Cruz.
What's more, WOW! Fiesta is car-friendly, with a portable and compact design. It's also a multimedia player so you can enjoy Full HD movie marathons or sound trips via its USB port. So even if phone connections will be limited and erratic during the grand parade, the fun and fiesta-feels entertainment will continue.
Just like the Sugbuanons, WOW! Fiesta Videoke will also join in vigorously chanting once again "Sinulog! Ishagit ug Kusog!" (Shout out Loud).
