Cebu City’s Sinulog Festival, one of the nation’s biggest, brightest and wildest parties is getting underway this week.

The annual cultural and religious celebration commemorates the Filipinos’ conversion to Christianity and in particular honours the Santo Niño.

But let’s be honest, it’s the music, dancing, drinking and fun that really brings people out onto the streets.

The biggest, most colourful day is the Grand Parade, which this year is being held on Sunday, January 15.
