Opening of Gabii sa Kabilin 2013

We have been huge fans of Gabii sa Kabilin in fact, we even joined the QR Code Hunt from SMART and Innopub Media last year. You can check out the fun we had here:

Would like to help spread the word of the next run for 2013.  Check out the press release we received about the event below.

Press release

RAFI's Culture and Heritage Unit and its partners will hold the seventh run of the Anvil-awarded event, Gabii sa Kabilin, on May 31 from 6 p.m. to 12 midnight. 

This year, the heritage event features 34 destinations--surpassing last year's 22--in four of the biggest cities of Metro Cebu: Cebu City, Mandaue City, Talisay City, and Lapu-Lapu City. 

Participants will be treated to cultural performances, culinary experience, art fairs, and special exhibits in all destinations of the event. 

In 2012, due to the success of the previous runs, Cebu City’s Sangguniang Panlungsod passed City Ordinance 2327, declaring the last Friday of May of every year as Gabii sa Kabilin or Night of Heritage. 

The implementation of the event is made possible through the partnership with participating museums and administrators of heritage sites and collaboration with local government units of Cebu Province, Cebu City, Lapu-Lapu City, Mandaue City, and Talisay City; government agencies, which includes Department of Tourism 7, National Commission for Culture and the Arts, Cebu City Traffic Operations Management, Cebu City Police Office, Cultural and Historical Affairs Commission, Cebu City Parks and Playgrounds Commission, Naval Central Forces of the Philippine Navy, and the Santo NiƱo de Cebu–Augustinian Social Development Foundation. 
The Gabii sa Kabilin ticket worth PhP150 is an admission ticket for all destinations, unlimited Gabii sa Kabilin-designated bus rides, and one tartanilla (horse-drawn carriage) trip within the city’s old district. Admission is free for children aged seven and below. 

We hope to meet you and/or representatives during this endeavor to create pride of heritage among Cebuanos.
