Starting January 15, 2018, Sinulog Festival is one of the most grand and colourful festivals in the Philippines, with a rich history. The annual festival infuses both culture and religion. Sinulog Festival takes place in Cebu City, one of the many tourist towns in the Philippines. The festival celebrates the acceptance of Catholicism by locals as well as the triumph of Christianity over secular religions that the country previously upheld. The festival also features a contest where attendants can take part in the various categories which are grouped into three, the Sinulog Base group, the Free Interpretation group, and the Street Dancing group. The festival lasts nine days and its culmination is marked by the Sinulog Grand Parade.
