The largest carrier in the Philippines, Cebu Pacific is all set for one of the country’s grandest festivals—Sinulog, in honor of Santo Niño de Cebu. While the annual Sinulog in the Queen City of the South features colorful street dancing, its essence is all about prayer, thanksgiving and celebration of Roman Catholicism and the Christian faith of Filipinos.
Cebu Pacific kicked-off Sinulog 2019 with colorful décor at its check-in counters at the Mactan Cebu International Airport (MCIA)—its largest hub in VisMin. A collaboration with social and cultural enterprise Alternative Nest and Trading/Training Hub for Ingenious/Indigenous Little Livelihood Seekers (ANTHILL), the Sinulog décor features colorful tribal masks and ‘Pit Senyor’ signages made from scrap materials such as discarded fabric and manufacturing waste. Life-size statues of Sto Nino made of recycled materials are prominently displayed at the airport’s check-in hall to give travelers a feel of the festival.
Cebu Pacific also joined forces with travel platform Klook to host Cebu’s biggest music beach festival yet—The 2019 Sinulog Beach Festival at The Happy Beach, home to the happiest floating playground in Asia. The festival promises heaps of fun and exciting carnival games and activities. The fanfare will also feature Cebuano talents Sepia Times, Mandaue Nights, & 22 Tango’s Vincent Eco and Lourdes Maglinte for the event’s sunset sessions. Acclaimed Manila DJs are also joining the party. Can’t-miss Performances by Deuce, Nix Damn P!, John Bosque, Victor Jao, & Renzo Seninig will make for a hyped-up night.
Tickets to the 2019 Sinulog Beach Festival are available through the Klook app. For as low as PHP500, get a Sinulog Beach Festival Barkada Bundle, which includes complimentary shuttle services between Cebu Mandaue, and Mactan Island.
Cebu Pacific will also be participating in the much-anticipated Sinulog Grand Parade on January 20. With the theme ‘Best of Cebu’, the CEB float will highlight famous landmarks and produce that are reminiscent of the Cebuano identity.
