(CEBU CITY – Public Information Office) - Visiting contingents from Placer in Masbate and Abuyog in Leyte bested the hometown favorites as they clinched the top plum in the Sinulog-based and free interpretation categories respectively in the 2015 Sinulog Festival.

Tribu Lingganay from Alang Alang, Leyte came in close second in the Free Interpretation Category followed by Tribu Himag-ulaw of Masbate in the third place. First-timer Tribu Katbalaugan of Catbalogan City, Samar placed fourth, while last year’s champion Lumad Basakanon of Basak San Nicloas, Cebu City landed on the fifth place.

The Buyogan Festival Tribu Buyoganon was declared best in Musicality while the Best in Costume went to Tribu Lingganay.

In the Sinulog-based category, Tangub City’s Sinanduloy Cultural Troupe snatched the second place, with Carcar City Division in the third place. The Tuburan National High School and Talisay City Central Elementary School grabbed the fourth and fifth places respectively.

In the meantime, in the Street Dancing Category, Tribu Lumad Basakanon defended its title as grand champion followed by Tangub City’s Sinanduloy Cultural Troupe in the second place. Other winners included Kulturang Placereno, Tribu Buyoganon and Tribu Lingganay in the 3rd, 4th and 5th places respectively.

This year’s Sinulog Festival was a huge success featuring world class performances by at least 44 competing contingents within and outside Cebu.

The Grand Finale featured the Kaplag or the discovery of the Holy Child Jesus with the brief history of Cebu.

Cebu City Mayor Michael L Rama was thankful to everyone who supported all the activities during the Sinulog. He reminded all to thank and honor Santo Niño as He is the reason why we celebrate Sinulog.

Rama enthuses that the Sinulog Festival will not be meaningful without the participation of the out-of-town contingents. As the chief executive of the city and at the same time the over-all chairman of the Sinulog 2015 celebration the mayor was very hands-on in taking good care of all aspects of the grand celebration.

Despite the Papal Visit and the threat of a bad weather, at least close to four million crowds coming from the different places here and outside the country joined and witnessed this year’s Sinulog celebration.

The concluding Mass of Pope Francis held at the Quirino Grandstand in Manila was also flashed in three big screen placed at the top and two sides of the stage at the Cebu City Sports Complex while the Sinulog Festival was also going on last January 18 Sunday.

Bearing its original slogan, “One Beat, One Dance, One Vision” and this year’s theme, "Santo Niño: Hope of the People" the Cebu’s coral celebration of Sinulog Festival turned out to be a huge success.

Furthermore, blessed with the miracles of Señor Sto. Niño, the good weather, the smooth flow of the activities with no major bad incident occurred coupled with the unity of leaders of the Church, the Cebu Provincial and City Governments and the support of the millions of Devotees of the Holy Child, the Sinulog 2015 has made a marked difference.
