We woke up early last Saturday, January 14, 2012 to witness the annual fluvial procession. Since we’ve been witnessing the yearly procession, we decided to wake up extra early to make sure that we get a good spot. The fluvial procession has become one of the most well-attended events of the Sinulog season. So, arriving at any ‘viewing points’ just minutes before the start of the procession is such a bad idea.
Every year, on the eve of the Fiesta Senyor (the day before the fiesta,) the image of the Niño is brought back to the City of Cebu. After one whole day in Mandaue City, the image is brought back to the Basilica through a traditional fluvial procession. The procession starts at around eight in the morning and culminates in a holy mass at the Basilica at nine.
Here are some photographs of this year’s Fluvial Procession. Hope you enjoy the shots.
