    CEBU, Philippines – City Mayor John Geesnell “Baba” Yap II yesterday led officials and the people of Tagbilaran in celebrating the 451st year of the Blood Compact, locally known as Sandugo, a contraction of “isang dugo,” forged between then native chieftain Datu Sikatuna and Spanish military general Miguel Lopez de Legaspi in 1565.

    The celebration also launched the “Saulog” Tagbilaran 2016, a festival showcasing the annual street parade on May 1st, the feast day in honor of Saint Joseph, patron of this city, as well as the capsule-laying for the construction of the multi-million-peso Bohol Friendship Park project.

    Yap said the park, which perspective and plan have been completed already, will have an amphitheater and a life-size galleon depicting the landing of Legaspi here.

    The park project, which has a P34 million fund from the Tourism Infrastructure Enterprises Zone Authority (TIEZA), will start soon, said the mayor.

    The Sandugo celebration started with a Holy Mass and then the wreath laying at the park in Barangay Bo-ol, where the icons of Sikatuna and Legaspi, doing the blood compact, are located.

    A short program followed with the turnover of checks for Emergency Shelter Assistance and Cash for Work for survivors of the earthquake that struck Bohol on October 15, 2013.

    Governor Edgar Chatto, Vice Governor Concepcion Lim, 1st district Representative Rene Relampagos, City Vice Mayor Jose Antonio Veloso and city councilors were among those who attended the celebration of a historical event in Bohol.

    Yap later led the presentation to the press the 15 candidates for the search of Mutya Sa Tagbilaran 2016 held at the Bohol Tropics Resort, which is owned by the mayor’s family.
