#Sinulog2018 Barrio Fiesta
“Kalingawan sa Plaza” is the venue of the Sinulog 2018 fair where devotees from the religious activities at the Basilica del Santo Niño and fiesta revelers shall find Barrio Fiesta food and fun.
Aside from the ubiquitous Cebuano barbecue, one can find lechon, Japanese snacks, Manok Bisaya, and Bo’s Coffee. A row of farmers’ stalls sells fresh vegetables. Plaza Independecia is also outside the 300-meter radius from the Sinulog parade liquor ban, said Councilor Dave Tumulak, Sinulog Foundation Execom chairman.
Tumulak, meanwhile, expressed thanks for the decision of Malacañang to open the road between Plaza Independencia and Malacañang sa Sugbo. A six-man team of the Presidential Security Group (PSG) arrived Sunday evening (January 14, 2018) to assist in Sinulog 2018 preparations.
Both Cebuanos and their visitors will be treated with the presence of heritage sites especially Fort San Pedro. It connects us better with our history, that of the Sinulog and who we are, he added. Cebu City had become the first Christian community in South East Asia after the explorer Ferdinand Magellan arrived and baptized some 800 Cebuanos in 1521.
The image of Senyor Santo Niño was Magellan’s baptismal gift to Cebu’s Queen Juana. It is now the oldest religious relic in the country. With rise of the ASEAN community, Cebu can claim as the region’s cradle of Christianity.
In addition, the arrival of Magellan gave Cebu a place in world history since Spanish expedition achieved the first circumnavigation of the world.
