President Rodrigo Roa Duterte witnessed the celebration and festivities of one of the country’s grandest and most colorful festivals – the Sinulog Festival – during his visit to the Queen City of the South in Cebu City.

Showcasing some of the Philippines’ colorful and rich tradition, culture and music, this year’s celebration focused on the theme, ‘One Beat, One Dance, One Vision.’ More than 100,000 people have witnessed the grand parade and joined a series of dance rituals in honor of the Santo Niño.

Cebu Governor Gwendolyn Garcia and Cebu City Mayor Edgardo Labella welcomed President Duterte in the event. The other attendees included Senator Christopher Lawrence ‘Bong’ Go, Cabinet Secretary Karlo Nograles and Presidential Communications Operations Office (PCOO) Secretary Martin Andanar.
