Fluvial Parade and Holy Procession

During the Sinulog Festival, you can join the Fluvial parade where devotees brave the Mactan channel waters to show their sanctity to its patron saint. The parade usually happens at 6 AM in the morning followed by a holy procession at 2 PM. The time in between is enough for you to do other things on this list.

Take your Relative’s Invitation

Since it’s going to be a lively celebration, locals wouldn’t mind cooking different dishes for visitors, family, and relatives. If you have relatives in the province, you can go to their homes and try the local food instead of your typical restaurant menu. And don’t forget to take a bite of Cebu’s famous Lechon!
