In the beginning of every year, there’s the two-week long Ati-atihan festival, when people throughout the Philippines wear elaborate fancy dress costumes and make-up, and party with music, dance and carnivals. The religious festival is held in a nearby municipality and is in honour of the Santo Niño de Cebu (the Holy Infant Jesus), a patron saint of the Cebu region. The Ati-Atihan takes place every third Sunday of January.
