Dubai: UAE-based Filipino groups will flock to Dubai in February to mark the popular Philippine festival Sinulog.
The sixth ‘Sinulog sa UAE’ will be held at Al Shabab Al Arabi Club on February 9, with the daylong event opening at 8am.
Sinulog is held in the island province of Cebu in the Philippines every third Sunday of January and is popular for its grand street parades as a tribute to the feast of the child Jesus known as Santo Nino.
In Dubai, Sinulog will be held indoors, with groups expected to don elaborate costumes and perform interpretative dance.
The event in February will run until 8pm and will include games and an indoor bazaar.
