DANCING CONTINGENTS. Many of the contingents dancing in this Sunday's grand parade come from outside Cebu. They spend huge amounts of money to join the festival every year as a religious pledge to honor the Santo Niño. Many also see it as a way to help promote their towns and cities in the country's grandest festival. (Photo by Frederick Salazar used with permission of the Sinulog Foundation).
