SINULOG 2018 EVENTS: Barrio fiesta Kalingawan sa Plaza

A Philippine fiesta is not complete without the fiesta food and the fun. Kalingawan sa Plaza,’ the Sinulog fair at Plaza Independencia, is thus a major fiesta with variety of food stalls, inflatables and a tartanilla ride for the kids, and nightly entertainment during the Sinulog week.
More than the festive barrio fiesta atmosphere at Plaza Independencia, the place is a short walk from the Basilica del Santo Niño and the Magellan’s Cross. Both Cebuanos and visitors will be treated with the presence of heritage sites especially Fort San Pedro. It connects us better with our history, that of the Sinulog and who we are.

Going back to history, Cebu City had become the first Christian community in South East Asia after the explorer Ferdinand Magellan arrived and baptized some 800 Cebuanos in 1521. The image of Senyor Santo Niño was Magellan’s baptismal gift to Cebu’s Queen Juana. It is now the oldest religious relic in the country.

Cebu can claim as the region’s cradle of Christianity. In addition, the arrival of Magellan gave Cebu a place in world history since Spanish expedition achieved the first circumnavigation of the world.
