Sinulog 2011

Viva Señor Sto. Niño!

Despite of the heavy rain, it didn't stop devotees to flock to the city to attend mass at the Basilica, watch the street dancing competition while others have to be inside the Abellana Sports Center to witness the entire Sinulog 2011 contest.

I took this picture on Saturday inside the mall after walking under the rain. The rain was indeed heavy. It stops but it gets back. When the rain pours, it floods in the sideways of the road. So, people are trapped in one area. Most of the people wait until the rain stops and the water is totally drained. But some didn't mind these. Devotees still walk and join the procession despite the weather condition. We were not able to join because we were very late. There was a heavy traffic in the highway too. So when we get where the procession have to pass, we stay for a while and few minutes after, the baby Jesus pass. People waved their hands with love and devotion. it's quite hard to get nearer due to the huge flock of devotees. Far yet near if He is in the heart of everyone.

On Sunday, I prefer to stay at home watching the live coverage of the Sinulog 2011.
