Holiday:

  •  Sinulog falls every 3rd Sunday of January. The next day after that, most business and schools have holidays. (Because maybe people drink all night and go home past midnight so it is usually impossible for them to work.) But it depends on the owners, nowadays, some big business don’t go on holidays

It’s FUN FUN FUN!

I am inviting everyone next year! Save the date 3rd Sunday of  January. Book early because all hotels are fully booked this Sinulog season.
