Sinulog Festival is celebrated in honor of the Holy Child, Sr. Sto. Niño de Cebu. The image was brought to the Philippines by Ferdinand Magellan and according to an article I read, it is the only non-marian image in the world to be given a canonical coronation. It was because of the image that the Philippines became Catholic.
The festival is celebrated every third Sunday of January. However, there are a lot of community-led activities before and after the festival. The festival features novena masses, fluvial procession, land procession, and street dance competition.
