CEBU CITY – Download the Android and IOS versions of the more advanced, yet friendlier Sinulog 2019 mobile companion at Google Play and App Store now.
Sinulog 2019 app now available for download
This digital companion shall enchant digital-savvy devotees and revelers of the Southeast Asia’s grandest festival, said Cebu City Councilor Dave Tumulak.
“I’m looking forward to new features like getting rewards for posting photos of your Sinulog Moments and the opportunity of users to vote, not only for their favorite festival queen, but also their favorite contingent, said the city official, who chairs the Sinulog Foundation Executive Committee.
The Sinulog 2019 app has been so designed so users can continue using several features like checking on the schedules and the maps on Sinulog weekend. They can even vote for their favorite contingents, said Tumulak.
The votes for one’s favorite contingent will load in the app server when cellphone signals return on the evening of January 20. The awarding will be on January 21.
Celebrated annually on the third Sunday of January in honor of Cebu’s patron Sr. Sto. Niño, the Sinulog festival culminates a week full of religious and cultural activities alongside rave parties and concerts.
Millions of devotees and revelers are expected to spill into downtown and uptown Cebu City for the religious procession on January 19 and the grand Sinulog parade on January 20.
Tumulak said the mobile app was created as Cebu City Mayor Tomas Osmeña has been pushing for ways to reach out to the younger generations.
The mayor, he added, is also looking forward to the 2021 celebration of the 5thcentennial of Ferdinand Magellan’s arrival in Cebu way back in March 1521.
