·2 min read

THE Sinulog festival has always been a highly anticipated occasion with activities such as processions, novena masses, the mardi gras and get-togethers. This year, the celebration has been scaled down for health and safety but it remains to be a celebration of Cebuano faith, culture and tradition.

Here are six ways to celebrate Sinulog at AyalaMalls Central Bloc:

1. Attend the novena masses

Start 2021 full of faith, hope and thanksgiving, and offer intentions for the year to Sto. Niño. Take part in the Fiesta Señor Novena Mass every 6 p.m. until Jan. 16 at the Chapel of St. John Paul II.

2. Get into the festive mood with music and dance

Show off your moves and enjoy club hits from Cebu’s finest DJs with the Beats & Rhythm DJ Nights at the Corte every 7 p.m. until Jan. 17. Be entertained by tribal beats while you shop as the Sinulog Drumbeaters go around the mall every 6 p.m. from Jan. 11 to 17.

3. Shop for a cause and support local

Visit the Maker’s Market Sinulog Bazaar located at the ground floor near Huawei from Jan. 13 to 31 and help small businesses. The bazaar features a wide range of Cebuano delicacies and Sinulog merchandise from accessories to t-shirts. All products are made and sold by local artisans and vendors, including members of the Federation of Barangay Apas Women Association.

4. Score Sinulog freebies and prizes

Drop by the Foodpanda Pink Sinulog booth at the Garden Row Activity Court ongoing until Jan. 17 for a chance to win freebies and premium items. Get a free Sinulog at Home Kit with a pair of shades, a festive headdress, a whistle, and Central Bloc’s Sinulog playlist when you shop through Ayala Malls Neighborhood Assistant (ANA) from Jan. 13 to 17.
