Sinulog Festival Queen 2016 – Runway Competition

dsc_9513

Every year, a day before the actual ritual and performance competitions at the Cebu City Sports Center, contingent lead dancers battle it out on the runway at the Sinulog Festival Queen Runway and Festival Costume competitions. Usually held at the Northwing of SM City Cebu, this ‘pre-pageant’ showcases the best and most talented Festival Queens.

Check out these photos (of each contestant) that I took during the actual event at SM City Cebu.
