Sen. Ejercito's statement on the success of the Sinulog Festival

CONGRATULATIONS to the officials of Cebu and its hospitable and beautiful people for the rousing success of this year's Sinulog Festival.

Like in all previous celebrations, this year's festivities showcased the creativity and talent of the Cebuanos' interpreted in various activities and programs that really entertained the spectators.

I really admire the Cebuanos for preserving and promoting the Filipino rich tradition and culture through the Sinulog Festival, considered as one of the grandest festivals in the Philippines, using modern style of performances and displays without losing its religious roots and content, which is a deep expression of honor, faith, and complete devotion to the Beloved Santo Niño.

Pero kahit na ito ay masasabi nating Catholic ceremony, para sa lahat ang pagdiriwang at welcome ang lahat na makisaya at makibahagi kaya talagang dinadayo ito taun-taon ng mga turista at bisita mula sa iba't-ibang bahagi ng bansa at pati mga foreigner.

We Filipinos should be thankful to the local officials of Cebu and their partners in the private sector and all the Cebuanos for giving us a very lively, joyful, and memorable Sinulog Festival every year and I hope this will inspire us to contribute our share, whether individually or collectively, in promoting and preserving our rich heritage amid rapid social transformation and modernization.
