Saulog Festival 2014 Street Dancing Highlights

Today, May 1, 2014 means that the whole Philippines observe Labor Day but for us here in Tagbilaran City, Bohol, it is more than that. It is the time to celebrate our annual city fiesta in honor of our city’s patron saint St. Joseph The Worker.

St. Joseph The Worker
Tagbilaran City's Patron Saint
“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.
