The fluvial procession, when the miraculous image of the Sto. Niño is transported through the Mactan Channel, is a much-anticipated Sinulog event. This year, the procession will be held on Saturday, January 20.

One of the best places to view the annual event is at the Mandani Bay Boardwalk. Everyone is welcome to join the festivities at the Boardwalk. This is the third year that Mandani Bay is hosting the fluvial parade from the vantage point on the mainland, part of its participation in the Fiesta Señor and Sinulog celebrations.

Mandani Bay’s participation is also part of the City of Mandaue’s overall safety, security, and logistics program for the annual observance of the Feast of the Señor St. Niño.

Gates open at 4:30 am. Sinulog street dancing, drum beaters and songs will engage guests as everyone waits for the procession to pass through.

Food will be available onsite. Concessionaires will have food booths serving a variety of meals and delicacies. Guests with invitations will be served breakfast.

The event at Mandani Bay will be aired live on Y101 with Jiggy Jr.’s Jiggy in the Morning.

Mandani Bay is Cebu’s most promising development. With a 500-meter water frontage facing the Mactan Channel, this world-class 20-hectare development has a stunning view of the coast and encompassing cityscape.

Premium mixed-use community

Built around a lifestyle of connectivity, this premium mixed-use community hosts a series of expansive podium blocks interconnected by footbridges. Residential towers rise from each of the podiums’ amenity roof decks, whilst street front retail thrives along the wide boulevards.

At the base, the buildings are also connected by a system of exclusive parking spaces weaving throughout the property. For strolling aboveground or driving and parking underground, Mandani Bay provides complete convenience allowing time for loftier pursuits.

Mandani Bay targets

Long-term projects like Mandani Bay will have most of the developments launched after 10 years and see complete build-up in 20 years, said Narciso, adding he sees a bright future for the property sector in Cebu.

Philippine economic trends also show that the property market can only go up in the medium term, added Carew. He said a change in government administration shouldn’t affect the sector too much.

Gilbert C. Ang, Mandani Bay project director, said that they considered what Cebuanos like when they designed the township. He added that they can expect their top four passions of culture, creativity, adventure, and water to be incorporated in the development.

According to Ang, the residential component of the project caters to a wide range of clients, from starting to established families. This is in line with their target to attract local Cebu residents and foreigners to make their home in Mandani Bay, which will be made up of 80 percent residential, 15 percent commercial, and five percent office spaces.
