As part of the annual Gabii sa Kabilin held last May 27, AboitizLand presented Handurawan sa Karaang Sugbo (Images of Old Cebu), an event that highlighted Cebu’s history and unique culture through an evening of food, music, and performances at Plaza Parian, Cebu City.
The University of San Carlos Theater Guild performed a play that retold stories from Cebu’s founding up and its evolution through time.
At the same venue, the Kabag-uhan: Now and Then Photo Exhibit showcased old photos of the province while the Food Festivala gave visitors a taste of Cebu’s best delicacies and local cuisine.
New additions to Gabii’s Parian leg are Pasundayag, a fun and enriching cultural talent contest for college students in Cebu and Lumba Pangita, a race to various Gabii sa Kabilin participating sites, which included team members from various Aboitiz Group Business Units as participants.
Gabii sa Kabilin 2016 had the theme “Forging Peoples”, a look into how Cebu and its people have journeyed towards building alliances, gaining partners, shaping a society based on its needs, and, at times, at war or welcoming different political views, religions, or lifestyles.
