Sinulog 2009 in Cebu City was a blast!

calle Zaragosa productions was commissioned to document the participation of the Buyogan Festival of Abuyog, Leyte at the Sinulog last January 18,2009.

And, indeed, it was such a rewarding experience for everyone as the Buyogan Festival emerged champion of Sinulog ’09!

A brief backgrounder for those not in the know: the Buyogan Festival is the current title holder as champion of the Leyte Pintados-Kasadyaan Festival held last June 27, 2008 during the Tacloban City fiesta celebration. The last time Buyogan Festival participated in the Sinulog was in 1996 (?) – more than a decade ago.

Documentation work included coverage of the contingent’s rehearsals as well as other behind-the-scene activities. Our team accompanied the contingent to Cebu, leaving Tacloban for Ormoc early morning of January 15, and taking the fully-loaded slow boat to Cebu (by coincidence, also travelling with us in the ship were the contingents from Dulag’s Tribu Karatong and Borongan’s Karasikas group.)

We took thousands of photos many of which still need to be post-processed. In the meantime, one may view the highlights of the main Sinulog Parade here:

Watch out for more galleries to come!
