Balik Cebu 2014 and Handumanan at Ayala Center Cebu

Are you coming to Cebu this January 2014 to celebrate the biggest and the grandest festival in the Philippines?

The Cebu City Government through Cebu City Tourism Commission in partnership with the Department of Tourism, Mactan Cebu International Airport Authority, Sinulog Foundation Inc. and some volunteers from the private sector will be holding the annual Balik Cebu 2014 Welcome Dinner and Handuman Cultural Center show on January 16, Thursday 5pm at the Ayala Terraces. This is a yearly treat to welcome Balikbayans and tourists who will be joining the Sinulog Festival. 

The Balik Cebu Program has always been a part of Sinulog activities that contributed largely to the increase of tourists since its inception. Now on its 13th year, the Welcome Dinner hosted by Ayala Center Cebu will be serving local Cebuano dishes in “boodle feast” style that will certainly bring in nostalgic flavors of Cebu. Another addition to the dinner party will be the Handumanan or the Sugboanon Kanunayng Madaugon which showcases the best of Cebuano talents.

This year, in the aftermath of supertyphoon Yolanda known internationally as Haiyan, Balik Cebu is responding to the call for aid. The Balik Cebu committee created the BalikBalay campaign to channel donations of balikbayans and other parties willing to help, into rebuilding lives of homeless survivors by providing funds for their dwellings.

Take part in all the festivities this January only in Cebu’s premiere shopping, dining, and entertainment destination, Ayala Center Cebu.
