Performers in their colourful and elaborate costumes, and an estimated crowd of 2,000 flocked to Dubai on February 16 to mark the 6th Sinulog in UAE.

One of the Philippines’ most popular festivals, Sinulog is held in Cebu every January in honour of the child Jesus, Santo Nino. The celebration has evolved from a simple dance tribute to Santo Nino, to a huge street festival that draws more than a million people to Cebu City each year as hundreds of groups perform on the street in a day-long parade. In Dubai, the celebration of Sinulog is a nod to the vibrant Filipino culture. Here’s a look at what unfolded.
