• Sinulog 2018 Survival Guide: Tips and Reminders for A Stress-free Revelry

      This weekend, the streets will burst with thousands of revelers and sheer merrymaking will once again fill the air as the countryís grandest, most awaited festival approaches.

      You may be an inveterate Sinulog reveler here who has been attending the festival rain or shine for the umpteenth time already or a first-timer with no expectations whatsoever in hand. Let us tell you one constant truth about the upcoming event: The crowd is massive. With thousands of adrenalized revelers expected to charge the streets and numerous activities set to happen on the streets on that day, itís definitely not going to be as calm as an afternoon tea party.

      Fret not, weíve rounded up some helpful tips for you to still get the dose of fun and enjoyment during the festivities. Survive the crowd like a boss.

      1. Be in your most comfortable outfit
      Sinulog weather is normally hot and humid so do yourself a favor, wear light-colored and loose-fitting clothing (If you remember your freshman science 101 lessons well, dark colors absorb heat).

      Also, bring out your most comfortable footwear, but no flip-flops though, and definitely no high heels.

      2. Donít forget to hydrate and energize
      You wouldnít want to brave the Sinulog crowd and submit yourself to the festivities without fueling up your energy. The day prior, itís advisable that you take as much rest as you can and eat properly.

      Drink enough water and be sure to bring a bottle before heading out.

      3. Keep an eye on your belongings
      Sinulog is not the time to flaunt pieces of jewelry or your latest iPhone. Keep your belongings to a minimum and bring only what is essential and keep watch over them. Avoid wearing backpacks or shoulder bags to ward off attention from pickpockets. Bring just enough amount of cash.

      4. Agree on a meeting spot in case of emergency
      If youíre going with a group, agree on a safe meeting place before heading out in case one of you gets lost in the busy crowd or mobile networks get shut down.

      5. Take pictures, let loose, and have fun
      Keep your security in check at all times but donít forget to have fun. Capture the fun experiences youíre about to have and make your Sinulog 2018 a memory thatís one for the books.

      The crowd may get too thick but if you remember the essence of the whole festivities, itíll lift up your energy. Donít let anything dampen your mood to celebrate with the rest of the Cebuanos.
