After the long wait, Lapu Lapu City Cultural and Historical Affairs Commission headed by Tourism Chief Hembler V. Mendoza with Tourism Chairman Damian Gomez and Co-chairman Honorable Harry A. Radaza with the support of Honorable Mayor Paz Radaza and City Officials,they  finally release the schedule of activities for the 492nd year celebration of Kadaugan sa Mactan.

This year’s celebration will officially open this Friday (April 19). Floral offering at the city’s auditorium by 7 AM then later that day at 6 PM, they would also open food festival which one of the reasons I’m also excited to join the celebration.

Five star hotels and food establishments all over the metro will join the celebration as they would showcase their best selling and sought after menus for LESS EXPENSIVE price. Variety and cultural shows are also one of the activities that you can watch at the Lapu Lapu Shrine every night.

While on April 26, everyone is invited to watch the Pre-battle Ritual which I have witnessed it for the first time last year. The pre-battle ritual will give us an idea about the things that happen before the battle as well as the native practices during Lapu Lapu’s time.

On the following day, April 27, is the re-enactment of the Battle of Mactan . Fil-Am actor Troy Montero will play the role of Magellan while Paolo Ravales will play the role of Lapu Lapu and Yam Concepcion will act as Princess Bulakna.

The celebration does not end after the re-enactment as we can still enjoy the beat and watch the RAMPADA contestants during the Kadaugan Street Party happening on Friday and Saturday.
