Tonight, Pasko sa Sugbo 2015 (Christmas in Cebu 2015) was officially launched at the Fuente Osmeña circle. The launching officially marks the beginning of the long Christmas-Sinulog season in Cebu City. During the launching, the symbolic lighting of the 2015 Christmas Tree was also done. Present during the event were Cebu City Mayor Michael Rama, Vice Mayor Edgar Labella, members of the city council, the 2016 Miss Cebu finalists, members of the local press, and thousands of Cebuanos who braved the early evening traffic just to witness this special yearly event.
Let’s take a look at some of the scenes during tonight’s launching program.
