Wheeltek and Kawasaki Team Up for Sinulog 2019
By Jan Carlo De Leon
It’s the time of the year where the Holiday season is still in the air. Everyone got their gifts and answered prayers from last year. It’s been a family tradition of Wheeltek Motor Sales Corp, to give honor and thanks to our Almighty for His unwavering guidance and continuous blessing over the company for the past 45 years since the company started from its humble beginning.
The start of January marks celebration of the famous Sinulog Festival in honor of Santo Niño de Cebu. Where thousands of tourists fly over and be part of the celebration. Wheeltek started to join the festivities in Cebu last 4 years ago. Participating every time since then. Year after year Wheeltek never fails to showcase its float with different themes.
Sinulog Sto Nino festival is an annual religious event held every 3rd Sunday of January in the city of Cebu. Where it has millions of visitors yearly making it one of the famous religious and cultural festivals in the country. The word “Sinulog” comes from the Cebuano adverb “Sulog” which can be translated to “Like water current movement” describing the dance routines of the dancers during the float parade.
This year’s Wheeltek and Kawasaki Motor Philippines Inc.’s float is designed to be a motorcycle. It symbolizes Filipinos who made a living and provided food on the table and raised their family by riding a motorcycle or tricycles, thus Wheeltek and Kawasaki wanted to showcase that tribute to all Filipinos. Having their motorcycles for their key to a new life.
So, make sure next year to plan out your trip to Cebu to be part of Sinulog 2020, explore Cebu its religious and cultural heritage and be sure to see Wheeltek’s next float during the parade.
