Wikipedia says that the word Sinulog comes from the Cebuano adverb sulog which roughly means "like water current movement;" it describes the forward-backward movement of the Sinulog dance. The dance consists of two steps forward and one step backward, done to the sound of drums.

The route where the Santo Niño will be paraded is 6.1 kilometers long. It will be an estimated 7 hour-long procession starting from 1 p.m. to 8 p.m., when the Santo Niño is expected to be back inside the basilica.

On the grand parade, organizers said that there will be 42 dance contingents and 40 floats that will move like a carousel in Cebu City's major streets.

Security officials are now ready for the flock of devotees. At least 2,000 policemen and 8,000 crowd control personnel will be deployed by authorities according to Sinulog foundation.
