One week before the great Sinulog Festival Grand Parade, a special event is held in Cebu City. Considered one of the most exciting activities during the entire Sinulog season, the event attracts thousands of Cebuanos and guests from different parts of the globe. Of course, I didn’t dare miss it not only because I was available (it was the weekend) but also because I wasn’t able to see a lot of Sinulog activities last year.
So, lemme just share with you guys a few photos I took during the Sinulog sa Kabataan 2020 competitions at the Cebu City Sports Center. I apologize if my photos aren’t too exciting as I wasn’t able to take photos of the actual performances because I was busy taking video clips as well.
Anyways, here are some random shots. Enjoy!
Enjoying this lovely treat while waiting for the program to officially start.
A few minutes before the first contingent arrived at the sports center, the image of Senyor Santo Nino entered the stadium.
Spectators waved their hands in devotion when the gozos was played as the vehicle slowly moved in front of the crowd.
This year’s contingents were very competitive. I noticed that a lot of them really outdid themselves to come up with truly memorable performances.
Near the end of the competition, the contingents gathered together on the stage for one last group performance.
This group excitedly posed for a photo after they were named one of this year’s winners.

Take a look at the stadium just 30 minutes after the end of the program.
And here’s another view of the grand stadium five minutes later.
