Sinulog is a nine-day fiesta celebration in honor of Sto. Nino. It is considered to be one of the most distinguished events in the country and is also celebrated by the Filipino communities overseas.
In New Zealand, the festival was observed by conducting Novena Masses at the Good Shepherd Church in Balmoral, Auckland since January 9. And on January 18, the culminating activity was held with a cultural show and Sinulog Dance Competition at the Malaeola Samoan Catholic Community Centre. Approximately 1500 devotees participated in the event.
The organizers of Sinulog Festival in New Zealand are very thankful for the full support that I-Remit – New Zealand provided by way of sponsorship and distribution of premium items to attendees.
