Lapu-lapu City once again prepares for a yearly tradition touted as the biggest street event of the city — the Kadaugan Street Party (KSP) 2012. This year, the event will be held on April 27-28.
Expectators can catch two whole days of non-stop activities, live entertainment, fun, games, sports, food, drinks and a lot more!
Last year, the event which occupied nearly the whole 2 kilometer stretch of M. L. Quezon National Highway, earned accolades from offline and online media, local government and the Oponganons. For most, the event was a “big winner!”. For some, “it surpassed the organizer’s expectation.”
Councilor Harry Radaza, lead organizer of KSP, revealed that around 40,000 party-goers graced on the first day of the same event last year. On the second day, around 60,000 were in the busy street of Lapu-lapu to witness the event. The said information were reveiled during the press conference organized by the City Tourism Office for Cebu-based Bloggers.
“Unsay street party kung walay beer?” says Councilor Radaza. Quoting historical facts, it was said that after Lapu-lapu forces defeated Magellan and his group, the Oponganon celeberated, which is the essence of the Kadaugan Street Party (KSP).
For her part, Lapu-lapu City Tourism Officer Fritzie Ken lauds this event supporting to the present Department of Tourism (DOT) slogan “It’s more fun in the Philippines.”
