      Pre-Sinulog activities are ongoing for the entire week. There are nightly variety shows at Plaza Independencia and Fuente Osmeña. The Sinulog 2019 mobile app was also launched simultaneously with the Sinulog kick-off activities. The app was created to reach out to younger generations. It was designed with two key features. Users can use the app to check on the schedule of activities and to check on the maps during Sinulog weekend. New features include the ability to post photos of your Sinulog memories. When you post, you get rewards. Users can also use the app to vote for their favorite festival queen and favorite contingent.

      Sinulog is defined by its religious procession on the 19th of January. There is a street procession and a fluvial procession. It is also defined by the grand Sinulog parade on the 20th of January. Over 26 floats are confirmed to take part. The photo contest is expected to have 200 contestants. During the grand Sinulog parade, there will be no reception from 8 AM until 5 PM.
