SANDUGO FESTIVAL
3rd week of July/ Tagbilaran City, Bohol

The Sandugo Festival is celebrated with an all-out fiesta each month of July in Tagbilaran City to commemorate the historic Spanish colonization of the Philippines, which began with a blood-sealed peace treaty on the shores of Bohol.  Check out the Sandugo street dancing parade featuring ten colorfully-dressed groups dancing to the beat of drums.  There's also a Traditional Filipino carnival, a martial arts festival, and Miss Bohol Sandugo Beauty Pageant, among the dozen of other exciting activities.  (Photography by Ryan Macalandag).
