Thousands of spectators yesterday filled a main street in Mandaue City to watch street dancing by six contingents in Spanish-period costumes for the  Panagtagbo Festival.

Dancers performed to lively, pre-taped music as the parade occupied A.C. Cortes Avenue and headed to the Mandaue City sports complex where a showdown would be held at 8 p.m. and contest awards announced.

“Panagtagbo” which means “meeting” in Cebuano was originally Mandaue’s participation during the ritual transfer of the Sto. Nino icon from Cebu City to Mandaue city during the religious feast of the Holy Child in January.

Yesterday was the third year of the festival, this time as a runup to Mandaue’s annual fiesta on May 8.

Performers chanted ‘Panagtagbo sa Mandaue’ with bright smiles as they started the street dancing at 4 p.m.  Read more: http://cebudailynews.inquirer.net/28779/mandaue-street-dancing-rolls-out#ixzz4pPgCAccS

Its origin can be traced back to 1907 when Margarita “Titay” Frasco created the crunchy cooking with the ingredients she had in her kitchen. Using her egg beater, baking tins, and clay oven, Titay created what became one of the best-loved delicacies in the town.  Read More:  http://www.peanutbrowas.com/blog/celebrating-the-rosquillos-festival-of-liloan
