by Fayette C. Riñen

CEBU CITY, January 16 (PIA) -- Cebu City Mayor Michael Rama said that the 32nd 2012 Sinulog Grand Parade yesterday was extremely successful, and expressed gratitude to the Holy Child Jesus Senyor Sto. Niño for the nice weather during the yearly mari gras celebration.

The weather bureau PAGASA earlier warned city residents to brace for a rainy weekend. There was only a slight drizzle in the afternoon.e.

Rama also recognized the efforts of the Sinulog Foundation, Inc., the Philippine National Police, AFP-Central Command and the different schools and universities and other government agencies as well as the private sector.

“The success of the Sinulog Festival is not only the success of the Cebu City Government but of all Cebuanos because the Sinulog is our pride," he said. "We celebrate it not only for the cultural and tourism aspect but also...(to) pay homage to our Child Jesus."

One hundred thirty-five contingents competed during the grand parade while the program lasted close to 9:00 p.m. that ended with a dazzling fireworks show. Cebuano talents in the field of arts, fashion and business among others were also recognized.

The Cebu Bus Operators fielded 30 buses last night to provide transportation for north and southbound residents to guarantee that the people living in far-flung areas are brought safely back home.

Except for 12 snatching incidents recorded, the Cebu City Police reported no significant untoward incident and said the event was generally peaceful and orderly. (PIA-Cebu)
