One of the most popular events/destinations during the Christmas season in Cebu City is the Kasadya Sa Colon. This yearly activity which is organized by the city government, turns Colon Street – the oldest street in the country – into a lively and festive night market.
The age-old street is filled with stalls selling fruits, midnight snacks, shoes, home supplies, ready-to-wear items, and lots more. The event allows small Cebuano and Muslim business operators to sell their products and services.
This year, the Colon Night Market ran from November 16 until December 30, 2012. The Night Market will once again open in June for the celebration of the Cebu Business Month.
Here are some photos that I snapped during the last night of the event. Enjoy!
