PHOTOS: Sinulog 2013

MANILA, Philippines - Four million locals and tourists converged to Cebu City on January 20 for the Grand Parade of the 33rd Sinulog festival, also known as #Sinulog2013.

The festival, also referred to as Sinulog sa Sugbo (of Cebu), is a month-long celebration that began in December 2012 with a street fair, fun run, and other cultural activities. 

The Grand Parade saw 142 contingents — some of them coming from outside Cebu City — compete for the honor of best float or best street dance group of the year. 

Here are photos of Sinulog 2013. Hear the music and the beat through them. Enjoy!
