Festivals in Cebu, Philippines

With the lead of the Provincial Capital, Cebu must be the only island province in the country where every municipality has its own annual festivals as a celebration of faith, love, hope, and harvest.
It does not come as a surprise that Cebu, the cradle of Christianity in the Far East, has many festivals top honor the miraculous Sto. Nino—the beloved Baby Jesus. Festivals are interesting lenses to know the locals’ way of living, the way they manifest their faith through a lively dance, the way they celebrate life and hope through colorful costumes and contagious beat, the way they smile throughout the dance despite their own burdens at home.
