Despite efforts over the years, there’s really no stopping anyone from hitting the streets—and why would you? It’s Sinulog, after all!
It’s going to be one crazy day, so make sure you live to tell the tale with these tips from those who’ve been there before.
“Don’t start drinking in the morning, because by 4:00 p.m., you’ll most likely be passed out while your friends are dancing around and partying!” – JAMAECA NELMIDA, executive officer, Ardent ActiveLife
IN THE BAG
While you’re not supposed to bring a lot of stuff, make sure you’ve stowed away these essentials before hitting the streets.
Break down those big bills so you can give the exact amount (or close to it) for your purchases. A lot of places—especially on the streets—might not have enough change.
… and we mean the isopropyl type (or ethyl). Washrooms might be hard to come by, so best to have a tiny bottle to sanitize your hands and clean minor wounds.
Similarly, clean bathrooms may be far and few in between along the street party scene. Have a small pack of baby wipes that can also be used to clean surfaces if you’re fussy.
Beer showers are inevitable, as is being smeared on by paint. Protect your precious phones and cameras with a waterproof case, or #lifehack one with a Ziploc bag.
We all know the importance of looking your festive best this Sinulog, yet take it one step further and choose accessories that are not only stylish, but practical as well.

For the ladies, switch your bras with swimwear instead. With all the beer showers and possible rain, getting wet during Sinulog is an inevitability.
Trust us: There’s more standing than drinking! Wear your most comfortable shoes—preferably closed, so you don’t have to worry about puddles and other ways your feet can get dirty.
