Bauan Fiesta Activities 2012

Bauan has started celebrating the 2012 Sublian and Feast of Mahal na Poong Sta. Krus over the weekend and the festivities will run until May 3.

Part of the celebration is the search for Mutya ng Bauan 2012 which will be on May 1 (that’s tomorrow), 7PM.

For those who would like to know more about Subli, these are some info from Wiki: Subli is the dance portion of a devotion performed in honor of the Mahal na Poong Santa Cruz, a large crucifix of anubing wood with the face of the sun in silver at the center. The icon was discovered in the early decades of Spanish rule in what is now the town of Alitagtag, Batangas. It is the patron of many towns in the area, notably the ancient town of Bauan, Batangas.

The subli consists of a long sequence of prayers in verse, songs, and dances, performed in a fixed sequence. The verse recounts the first journey of the early manunubli ( subli performer) through the fields, hills, and rivers of Batangas in search of the miraculous cross. Sections of verse are sung to a fixed punto or skeletal melody, which may be elaborated on in a different way by a different subli troupe.

Come celebrate with the people of Bauan. These are the activities you should not miss:
