The recently-concluded Sandugo Festival was considered a success by the people behind the event, as organizers admit there are still room for improvement.
The Sandugo Committee, led by Engr. Albert Uy, vice-president and executive director, met last week with Gov. Edgar Chatto and the city government of Tagbilaran Mayor John Geesnell Yap together with city administrator Edi Borja.
Uy thanked the key government officials for their support in making this year’s Sandugo Festival celebrations a success.
During the assessment, feedback from people who turned out in the events were tacked.
The over-all assessement showed this year’s event surpassed expectations and marked with improvement compared to previous years.
As this developed, the committee within the Sandugo Foundation are looking forward to implement the learnings and the feedback gathered to improve the staging of Bohol’s flagship festival.
All criticisms, both positive and negative, were noted by the coordinators, reports said coming from the Capitol.
The criticisms will be used as a baseline data for the improvement of the festival in the future.
Earlier planning is also one thing that is being eyed by the organizers.
The Sandugo Festival is the flagship festival in Bohol. The Sandugo is held every July, the month where the Boholano province was founded.
The festival re-enacts the first treaty of its kind between Raja Sikatuna and Miguel Lopez de Legazpi. The two sealed a pact of friendship by blood letting and mixing blood with wine, which they drank as a symbol of their alliance and the friendship of the two people.
