Enrich the cultural heritage. This is one major factor in achieving Tagbilaran City’s vision of becoming a highly livable city by 2020. The strategy?
Raise the cultural consciousness of the constituents. Thus, the City Council for the Culture and Arts through the City Planning and Development Office translated the mission into an initiative. And since religion is very much a major part of the Tagbilaranons – being evident in the way they celebrate fiestas – the council has decided to commemorate the feast of St. Joseph the Worker as a city. Dubbed as SAULOG TAGBILARAN which means Celebrate Tagbilaran, the event aims to unify the participation of neighborhoods and communities in honoring St. Joseph the Worker through a Fluvial and Street Dancing Parade.
