For the second straight year, OLX Philippines joined the excitement of one of the country’s grandest festivals, Cebu’s most-awaited Sinulog Festival. Cool OLX Sinulog items and prizes were given away to festival-goers who visited their booths at the Fuente Osmeña Circle from January 8, and at the Osmeña Boulevard on the Sinulog Grand Street Parade Day on January 17, 2016.

Last year, OLX Philippines received an overwhelming response from booth visitors who received free OLX merchandises such as t-shirts, umbrellas, foldable fans and LED whistles, among many others.

“This year, we want to make their booth visit more worthwhile by quickly educating them on the benefits of online buying and selling as well as assisting users with their OLX ads and accounts, ” added Aguilar.

“We’ve been operating in Cebu since 2014. As a part of the Cebuano community, we want to show our utmost support for its biggest annual event by contributing in making it more colorful, festive, and exciting,” said OLX Philippines Senior Marketing Manager for Cebu Regina Aguilar.

OLX also had a special participation at the Sinulog Festival Queen pageant where a “Miss OLX Philippines” was awarded to one of the contestants, Cynthia Thomalla, who also happened to win the grand prize. Cynthia, representing Tribu Himag-Ulaw of Placer, Masbate is now the reigning Sinulog Festival Queen.
