Opening the celebration at Parkmall’s Sugbo Fest is the Sinulog Bazaar. It already started last January 7, and it will end on Sinulog Sunday. The bazaar is a festive haven where shoppers and loyal patrons can find their Sinulog necessities: stylish apparels, bags and other accessories.

Vibrant festival costumes intricately created by some of Cebu’s top designers will be showcased at the West Lobby until January 15. The Sinulog Festival Costume Exhibit Contest will also give shoppers an opportunity to cast their votes for their favorite costumes by voting on-site and online. Lucky shoppers will also get a chance win gift packs from Parkmall for joining the activity.
No Filipino fiesta is ever complete without a feast, and what better place to enjoy one that’s proudly Cebuano than at Cebu’s premier al fresco dining destination. It’s going to be more fun at Parkmall’s Kumbira where a wide variety of dishes, drinks, and desserts prepared by some of the popular players in the local culinary scene await foodies of all ages.
The Kumbira feast starts at 5PM until 12MN on January 13-15 at the Central Bark, right beside Choobi-choobi.
