It’s all systems go for the Filipino community, which will be celebrating Sinulog sa UAE 2016 – the Philippine version of Mardi Gras – on Friday 29 January at Al Safa Stadium, according to the event organiser. Sinulog, from the Visayan word sulog which roughly means ‘like water current movement’, is a highly-anticipated annual festival held every January in Cebu City, in central Philippines. The festival will start at 8am with a basketball championship, with the event lasting until early evening, culminating with a variety show, street dance competition and search for the Festival Queen. There will also be a food and mini-bazaar, a higantes-making contest (giant papier-mâché), and singing contest.
