CEBU CITY, Philippines – Cebu City Mayor Edgardo Labella declared that the Sinulog Festival 2020 which was witnessed by at least 2 million people on Sunday, January 19, was a peaceful and orderly success.

“The Sinulog Grand Parade was definitely a success,” Labella told the hundreds gathered at the Cebu City Sports Complex (CCSC) today, Monday (January 20) for the Sinulog Awarding Ceremony wherein the winning contingents performed their winning rituals once again on stage.

Labella also commended the efforts of the police in Central Visayas for helping secure the Sinulog Festival 2020, the 455th Fiesta Señor celebration, and all the events related to both.

“It was a peaceful and orderly celebration not only during the Sinulog Grand Parade but also throughout the nine-day Novena Masses, the Solemn Foot Procession, and other activities related to Sinulog Festival. With that, I would like to give our thanks to the members of the Philippine National Police (PNP),” he added.

Crowd-favorites Sinanduloy Cultural Troupe from Tangub City in Misamis Occidental and Lumad Basakanon are the big winners for this year’s Sinulog Grand Parade.

The Sinanduloy Cultural Troupe is this year’s champion for the Ritual Showdown and Street Dance Competition under the Sinulog-Based category while Lumad Basakanon bagged the championship for the Ritual Showdown under the Free Interpretation category.
