I went early to the Cebu City Sports Center last january 10 to get a good seat. More people usually watch the Sinulog Sa Kabataan Sa Dakbayan not only because the event is held on a Sunday, but also because the contestants come from different public elementary and high schools in the city of Cebu. Parents love to support their kids who participate in this said event. And usually, a group of five people would come to support a single dancer. So, imagine how many parents and supporters were actually there. LOL.
Anyways, although I already had a Photographer’s ID, the idea of standing beside the real photographers with my digital camera made me uncomfortable. LOL. So, I stayed near the VIP section in the grand stand and opted to take wide shots and just use the auto-zoom to focus on things that might be interesting.
By the way, here are the winners of the Sinulog Sa Kabataan Sa Dakbayan 2010:

5th Banilad Night
