Sabat Santa Cruzan

May 31, 2017
Location : Plaza Angel

The evening of May 31, 2017 was set for Angeles City’s version of Sabat Santacruzan. According to Filipino Heritage Festival, Inc. (FHFI), “Sabat is a version of the Santa Cruzan in which costumed performers interrupt the procession to challenge the sagalas and their consortes to a duel, either through verbal joust or a swordfight. It is a reenactment of the ambuscades that infidels (Moros) launched on the Crusaders as they returned to Europe after finding the Holy Cross.”
