Devotee City preparations ongoing

Thursday, December 15th, 2011

CEBU CITY — Thousands of pilgrims from all over the country are gathered every January for the Sinulog festival, which is also the feast of Sr. Sto. Niño. Some of them are housed inside the Devotee City.

Devotee City committee chairman Councilor Roberto Cabarrubias said pilgrims from Bohol, Leyte, Samar, Dumaguete, Siquijor, Luzon and Mindanao provinces, and even beyond the cities of Carcar and Danao, who cannot afford to stay in hotels and do not have relatives in the city, are accommodated in the Devotee City.

“We do not want to see them sleeping along sidewalks and outside the churches,” he said.

The Devotee City will be at the Compania Maritima, Cebu International Port, where 110 20-footer two-level vans will be in place to shelter more or less 2,500 devotees.

The area is provided with electricity, comfort rooms and even wifi. All the activities inside the Devotee City will be video-streamed. It can be watched real-time on the Cebu City Government website.

Unlike before, when devotees had to eat inside their vans only, this time, a mess hall with tables and chairs will be set up.

The Devotee City will start welcoming pilgrims on January 15. Devotees are required to keep and present only their bus and boat tickets.

“We will give them IDs with their van numbers that will serve as their gate pass,” Cabarrubias said.

Aside from the Aboitiz Group and other sponsors, Julie’s bakeshop also partners with the City Government to provide snacks and entertainment for the devotees.

Fluvial parade tickets will also be raffled off to allow some devotees to experience the fluvial procession.

Two uniformed policemen will also secure the place for 24 hours with the help of village watchmen, Cabarrubias said. (Maria Armie Sheila Boco Garde/Sunnex)

Sinulog street fair and its purpose

Sunday, December 11th, 2011

THE Sinulog Foundation Inc. (SFI) is organizing a street fair annually to help traders showcase their products and to generate income for the foundation.

SFI’s Executive Director Ricky Ballesteros said the purpose of having a street fair is to let vendors from all over the country expose their products.

The street fair runs from December 1, 2011 to January 31, 2012. It started in 1994 in time for the Palarong Pambansa, which was held in Cebu City.

Ballesteros said the foundation has leased stalls to traders at P30,000 to P35,000 each for two months.

He added the street fair is also regularly organized for the foundation to generate income and to raise funds for the Sinulog activities.

He said the SFI collected around 1.8 million in stall rental for last year’s Sinulog.

This year, Ballesteros said they are hoping to collect a net income of P800,000 to P1 million.

Earnings generated from the rentals will be used for next year’s Sinulog celebration. (Tashuana Alemania/Sunnex)
