Sagala or Santacruzan is a popular religious festival held in many towns and cities throughout the Philippines as the highlight of the month-long celebration of Flores de Mayo during the month of May. It is usually celebrated with a parade of decorated floats and elaborately dressed characters, representing various aspects of the Virgin Mary and other figures. The festival was introduced to the country during the Spanish period and continues to be celebrated by Filipinos all over the world.

Actually this is the first time happened sagala in our Village, because I requested to the entire officer to have a simple sagala, to feel the homeowners the happiness of fiesta. Because I am the in charge of this event, I already joined my little Vince :-). I also enjoyed the result because of the cooperation of the homeowners.
