Katkat, katkats everywhere.

I’m sure you’ve heard of this: the Kadaugan Street Party!

Why does Lapu-Lapu City hold this event? Copy cat of the Cebu City’s Sinulog? Of course not.

History 101

Remember that epic moment when Datu Lapu-Lapu didn’t like Magellan’s offer. They were eventually engaged in a bloody battle.

We all know the outcome, the Datu won and well, there was celebration everywhere in the island.

That’s why, in commemoration of that victory and bravery displayed hundreds of years ago, the Kadaugan Street Party was born.

What’s different in this year’s Kadaugan Street Party from last is that it will be celebrated for…(drum rolls please)…three days!

April 25, 26, and 27, 2014. Mark your calendars, ladies and gentlemen!
