Event Coverage:

Dubbed “Saulog sa Tagbilaran,” the activity  brings to the fore the virtues of Saint Joseph as a loving father and devoted worker and intends to showcase the city's cultural heritage and tourism potentials as well, in cognizance with the Provincial Government of Bohol‘s thrust of promoting the tourism industry.

Religion is an integral part of the culture of the Boholanos in general, and the Tagbilaranons in particular. 

Considering its impact on the people, paying homage to Saint Joseph the Worker, the patron saint of Tagbilaran, every May 1, coinciding with the Labor Day observance, has become a great inspiration in the creation of “Saulog sa Tagbilaran.”
