“Just search and download ‘Sinulog 2018’ in Google Play or the App Store and install the app on your smartphones,” said Councilor Dave Tumulak, Sinulog Foundation Execom chairman. “This is your must-have digital pal or buddy who will help you move around the country’s grandest celebration – Cebu’s Sinulog Festival 2018.”
“Mayor Tommy Osmeña pushed this during a Sinulog Foundation board meeting last December. He shared his vision of reaching out and making Sinulog 2018 relevant to new generations of digital Cebuanos. With the millennials growing up, we are also welcoming our generation Z,” Tumulak said.
“Thus, you might have already noticed our sleeker Sinulog Foundation website. Our Facebook page has grown exponentially, thanks to our social media team. We are coordinating 24/7 with the social media teams of the Cebu Provincial Capitol and the Philippine Information Agency (PIA). We reached out to Cebu’s blogging community,” Tumulak said.
“Thanks to one of Cebu’s tech startups, we now have the Sinulog 2018 app that will be launched in simple ceremonies during the opening program of “Kalingawan sa Plaza” at Plaza Independencia tonight,” Tumulak said.
The mobile app helps you plot your route and schedule amid the myriad of religious-cultural activities every day during the festival week. Through the app, you can access basic information about the various activities and specifics like the parade contingents, maps of the official routes, and where to party.
You will also get news about important announcements and developments as it happens as well as immediately share what’s happening with friends and relatives here and abroad through social media.
Finally, app users can vote for their favorite Festival Queen 2018 candidate through the “Festival Queen App Users’ Choice.”
The smartphone app provides you with the information you need to enjoy a festival that celebrates the birth of Christianity in South East Asia. The festival combines both East and West as it celebrates a native dance of worship called the Sinulog which is dedicated to Senyor Santo Niño, the Holy Child Jesus of the Christian world.
