Around 80 percent of the partner hotels and resorts have already improved their amenities in preparation for the event. This year’s Suroy-Suroy Sugbo will cover towns and cities in the first, second, and seventh districts of Cebu. It is scheduled to be held on November 15 to 17 .
Cebu Heritage Walk planned for the quincentennial celebration
A heritage walk is in the works as part of the quincentennial celebration in Cebu City. This was revealed by Kenneth Cobonpue, who was assigned to lead the Visayas Quincentennial Committee. The world-renowned furniture designer said the first committee meeting with the Archdiocese of Cebu also discussed the redevelopment of some areas in downtown Cebu. He said it was necessary to rehabilitate and renovate some areas as they plan for the heritage walk. While nothing is final yet, the planned starting point of the walk is the Parian area. It will head towards the Cebu Metropolitan Cathedral and end up in the Plaza Independencia area. The walk is expected to be launched before the quincentennial celebration, which celebrates the victory in the Battle of Mactan as well as the 500 years of Christianity in the Philippines .
