112th Philippine Independence and 3rd Hinulawan Festival

American Recognition on Independence - July 4, 1946

Philippine Declaration on Independence - June 12, 1898

But our City is not only celebrating independence day but also our City fiesta. One of the highlights of the event is the Hinulawan Festival. Hinulawan is taken from the two Cebuano words hinagoang bulawan.

There are four basic steps in hinulawan festival and these are the four golden features of the City.

1. Bulawanong Paghinigalaay (Golden Friendship)
2. Bulawanong Pagtoo (Golden Faith)
3. Bulawanong Bahandi (Golden Treasure)
4. Bulawanong Ani (Golden Harvest)
