Sinulog 2018: Where to “Burak”?

Google+ Pinterest LinkedIn Tumblr

Burak! Sinulog! Prititit! Pit Senyor!

These words are common in Cebu when January starts. Why? It’s Prititit time! Sinulog Festival where we celebrate when Magellan pass to Catholic church the Sto.Nino image. A lot of activities handled by Cebu City Government from the fluvial procession, grand parade, Sinulog Idol and many more activities.

“Asa ta mo.burak?” (Where to party?).

We all know that when Cebu City Mayor Tomas Osmena take over again the position last election, he strongly ban the wild parties and street parties. He even threat stores near the vicinity to close if they violate.

In Sinulog 2018, what’s new? We still have no wild parties applied during this week unless it has permission by the authority. He even ordered now for liquor ban. No liquor is allowed to sell during the date of Sinulog Festival.

The EO further provides that entertainment ban will be implemented within the 300-meter radius of the Sinulog parade and procession route on Jan. 19, 20 and 21.

These activities include concerts, shows, performances, gigs, recitals, events, street parties, among others.” – from Philstar

I’m quite surprised that party events are getting fewer every year. Maybe due to the new policy by Cebu City Government. I remember it “Serendepity” and many more.

Some popular Clubs and Bars

  1. LIV Club
  2. ICON
  4. And your favorite bars outside 300-meter radius.

By this time, we will enjoy the Sinulog Festival 2018 even more due to less drunk people, stampede, and parties. I personally love to party but this is good for the security of all people and let Filipinos the true value of why we celebrate Sinulog every year.

But still, we can do “Burak” outside the 300m radius of Sinulog parade and processions, right? So, “Burak” na!! Prititit! Pit Senyor!!

Pit Senyor, mga Laagan!! See you 🙂

Share your party experience and your expectation this coming Sinulog 2018
