On our first night celebrating Sinulog Festival 2013, we went to the Cebu City Sports Center for this year’s Festival Queen. It was a night of beautiful ladies from different parts of the country, and I must say the winner deserved the crown. Read more…

The Sinulog Festival Queen is honored every year to personify Hara Amihan or later Queen Juana, the wife of Rajah Humabon. Queen Juana was presented with the Santo Nino by the Spaniards as a way to baptize or “benevolently” conquer them, but more importantly, she is said to have held the Santo Nino in her arms and danced to bless people who were ill.

After a night of colorful costumes, introductions, and cultural presentations, the following were hailed as winners:

Fourth runner up: Cherry Lyn Enad of Carcar City
