Travel and Places: Sinulog De Clarin

If Cebu City, Philippines, had a grand and luxurious annual Sinulog Street Dance in honor of Señor Sto. Niño, Clarin, Misamis Occidental had a freestyle, boisterous, dance all you can theme, to celebrate the Holy Child's feast. Freestyle means that you can dance in whatever routine you want, shout for praise or let everything out to jive with the Sinulog beat, all day long, your choice, as long as your not physically bothering anyone else of course.

This is my second time to witness and participate in the religious celebration and I had to say that its always been devoutly gratifying. Its not everyday that you get a chance to express your praise in an upbeat way, the impact overall is ethereal and spiritually uplifting. I would really encourage everyone to try it.

Well, Sto. Niño Cathedral of Cebu City had these dance and praise sessions during the Sinulog day but with the street dance competition going on all at the same time, visitors tend to watch the latter rather than attend the session, while here in Clarin, the freestyle dancing in the church is its main attraction, so better yet come and celebrate with us.Sinulog de Clarin happens every 15th day of the month.

To give you an idea how fun the celebration is, watch this short video I made. Enjoy!
