A major annual festival in Cebu, held every third Sunday of January to honor the Sto. Nino.
The Sinulog as we know it today is a far cry from how it was observed prior to the 1980's. The dancing was only confined within the premises of the Basilica Minore del Sto. Nino wherein women candle vendors danced the Sulog as a form of fervent prayer and devotion to Sto. Nino. The Sulog (a contraction of Sinulog) which roughly means "Like movement of water current" is performed with forward-backward. Moreover, a solemn procession through the major streets of Cebu served as one of the highlights of the festivity.
