A celebration of the 338th fiesta of the town, Danao City Cebu - Karansa Festival 2009 this coming September 20. The festival is honor to St. Sto. Thomas de Villanueva, the patron saint of Danao City.

Karansa is a dance festival that shows the joy and happiness through performing the four basic steps, the kikay, karag, kurug and kurahay. In a little way, its a dance to be merry and to celebrates - a word from Councilor Carmen "Ivy" Durano-Meca, committee on Tourism Chairperson. It was called Karansa because the people of Brgy.
