Kabanhawan Festival

April 18, 2009

Minglanilla Cebu, a first class municipality, is also known as the "Sugat Capital" of the South. In the early days, Minglanilla was a barangay of Talisay.

It was "Buat", a variation of the word 'bulad'which means dried fish. According to the church records, the town was founded in 1858 by Father Fernando Sanchez, the first Spanish priest who changed the name to Minglanilla, an obscure place in Spain where he was born.

Kabanhawan Festival

Sugat is a big socio-religious event in Minglanilla, which attracts not only people from adjacent towns but also from Cebu City. On Black Saturday night, a public dance is held at the Church Plaza to witness the renactment of the 'meeting' of the risen Christ and his mother.
