SAULOG SA TAGBILARAN 2015 TAKES TO THE STREETS TODAY!
Yesterday, at 3 pm, CPG Avenue, the main thoroughfare of Tagbilaran was closed to traffic. The reason? To give way to the Saulog Street Dancing & Ritual Competition time once more
Saulog Tagbilaran 2015 took a more upbeat & colorful turn yesterday as all of the city’s 15 barangays competed for cash, pride and bragging rights in the Saulog Tagbilaran 2015 Street Dancing & Ritual Competition. It was a display of choreography, costumes and colors as the handpicked representatives danced their way to the spectators’ and judges’ hearts.
The Saulog streetdancing, apart from being a dance offering of the life of Saint Joseph, also allows Tagbilaranons to showcase what the City of Friendship has to offer.
