For the Sinulog weekend, the Cebu City Hall will be strictly implementing their no-street-party policy within 300 meters of the procession and grand parade routes, including N. Escario St. As such, only dance parties away from the 300-meter zone will be allowed. These include ETC Paintensity Sinulog 2017 in Mabolo, Sinulog Invasion 2017 and LifeDance 2017 at the South Road Properties, Sinulog Sensation inside Alchology, Mango St., Liv Nation in Mandaue and Plus63 Music and Arts Festival in Cebu Business Park. Moderate to heavy traffic can be expected along these areas due to the throng of revelers anticipated to join the parties.

Not many people know that celosia is the official Sinulog flower. Similar to the colors of the Sto. Niño’s cape, this ornamental flower has red and yellow blooms and can be found in abundance at the flower farms in the mountain barangay of Sirao. The place, located about 17 kilometers uphill from JY Square Mall in Lahug, has been dubbed as the “Little Amsterdam” of Cebu City
. Entrance fee to the farm is PhP50 while fare for a habal-habal
(motorcycle) ride can range from PhP30 to PhP450.
