Sinulog 2015’s See Cebu in a Carousel

See Cebu In A Carousel - end photo

I am pleasantly surprised to find out that this year’s See Cebu in a Carousel looks different from the last time I featured the tarpaulin posters here. These tarps, which are still propped along the stretch of Osmeña Boulevard, provide the Sto. Niño devotees, the Sinulog party revelers and everyone in between, a glimpse of Cebu’s various tourist spots.

There are noticeably new postcard-worthy photos of white sand beaches this year. These are represented by the municipalities that were chosen somehow for their location in Cebu, one destination each from the north, east, west and south of the province.

As I headed downtown, I got more surprised by the displays showcasing the natural landscapes in some of Cebu City’s mountain barangays. These gave me ideas where to go next if I want a cheaper and nearer escape from the urban jungle. Next time, I’ll just hop on a jeepney and trek to Taptap, Cambinocot, Tagba-o, Sinsin, Babag and Bonbon.

See Cebu In A Carousel - Pope Francis

The second to the last tarp that I saw was that of Pope Francis. Although he is not a Cebu destination per se, the organizers probably included him this year as a tribute and a thanksgiving to the rockstar pope who recently visited the Philippines.

Although there are fewer tarps in this year’s See Cebu in a Carousel, I still enjoyed taking photos while walking along Osmeña one chilly evening not too long ago. Next year some of these tarps would probably be recycled which is something that I really don’t mind. Maybe the organizers could also scatter these around the entire Sinulog street dancing route as well, if only for something that’s closer to a merry-go-round experience.
