Let's time travel back to thirty five years ago, when Sinulog dance parade was nowhere in history. When there were no street parties and TV stars swarming in town every January.
Could you have imagined Cebu being the Queen city of the South? Anyways, when the first Sinulog was organized, who could have foreseen that the festival would become the grandest festival in the country? But now, in its 35th year, Sinulog organizers have prepared for us more things to look forward to.
Now, here's what you should look forward to this Sinulog Grand Parade 2015.
