The year 2018 is off to a great start with a spectacular Sinulog celebration in the offing. Sinulog is one of the Philippines’ most popular festivals, and every third Sunday of January, religious devotees and partygoers head to Cebu for the parades, street dances, and the biggest parties the city can muster. Being one of the biggest cultural festivals in the country, Sinulog draws millions of people from different cities across the Philippines and around the world. The city of smiles draws about 1.5 million every year with all its activities and main attractions such as the grand parade or street dancing. Cebuanos garbed in colorful costumes dance in the streets for hours while surrounded by beautifully-designed floats.
This year, Globe wants to amplify customers’ digital lifestyle on top of their festival experience and it begins with upgrading to faster technology. As part of its commitment to create a faster internet experience for Filipinos, Globe continues to expand its LTE network coverage and capacity in Cebu. For the whole month of January, Globe subscribers can trade in their 3G SIM cards to the new and improved LTE SIM at special booths all over Cebu and Mandaue.
The celebrations will start on January 20 to 21 with the #GlobeSinulog Fair at Garden Bloc, Ayala IT Park, where customers can explore booths with fun games and activities. Visitors can take the Postpaid Personality test and play fun games like Just Dance and NBA. Those who complete the booth activities can win Sinulog-exclusive prizes and freebies.
Globe At Home, through its #Streamfest event, will showcase a variety of experiential booths at the Garden Bloc Ayala IT Park on the same weekend to give attendees a taste of the best global entertainment brands, powered by Globe At Home Prepaid Wi-Fi and Home Surf promos. Customers who are interested to buy a Globe At Home Prepaid Wi-Fi device can get a P200 discount when they purchase at #Streamfest.
Exciting gifts and prizes will also be up for grabs, and those aspiring to start their own vlogs will get tips from Cebuana Vlogger ChinkyTita during a special segment on January 20, wherein she will share how to create streaming-worthy content.
On January 20, revelers can attend Neon Jungle: Sinulog Music Festival, which features the country’s best DJs at the Norkis Cyberpark parking lot in Mandaue City.
