sign

If you hail from the island of Cebu, you should know that today is the annual grand dance fest/parade that snakes its way around the city as everyone else gets smashed, if they can afford it, or not. A relatively new festival in Cebu (less than 30 years), I think it was the brainchild of public servants who wanted to have a rival tourist attraction to the older and more well-known Ati-atihan in Kalibo, Aklan. At any rate, it is great fun and it always amazes me how the competing teams can keep hopping on their feet for several hours straight. I can barely muster a dance or two at gunpoint. And this year, as with many recent parades, it passed directly in front of one of my family’s properties in the heart of Cebu so I decided to put up “VIVA PIT SENOR” signs, and for good measure, threw in three Marketmanila.com posters as well. They were tiny at 2 x 6 feet each and were really more for amusement than anything else. We were supposed to spruce up the place for the parade. However, I am curious if any regular readers who were in Cebu today for the Sinulog festival spotted these miniscule signs along the official route of the parade… I also totally forgot to switch on my television this morning (just got back from a trip) and wonder if anyone saw the signs on television, since the ABS-CBN cameras were across the street at an angle and so were the GMA7 cameras a little further down the road… hmmm… I wonder. At any rate, I wish all the Cebuano readers near and far a Happy Sinulog!!!
