The Walk with Jesus dawn procession officially kicks off the Sinulog atmosphere in Cebu City and marks the first day of the novena masses. The walk starts at 4AM from Fuente Osmena Circle down to Basilica Minore del Santo Nino via Osmena Boulevard. This happens 11 days before Sinulog day, which is every 3rd Sunday of January, where thousands of devotees solemnly walk with candles while praying the Holy Rosary and singing Bato Balani sa gugma song.
