Subli-an sa Batangas
Held every July 23 is the Subli-an sa Batangas. The festival, originally started as a religious devotion to the Holy Cross, which later developed into a dance form calledthe Subli, a dance indigenous to Batangas. Subli is danced to the accompaniment of a song in four voices:the first voice is sung by the performer, t the second voice extolls the Holy Cross of Bauan and narrates the history of Batangas, the third voice is the "Subli" proper which combines poetry, dance and music, while the fourth voice features the observer in his search for the lost self.

The Subli is therefore an art form the culls the insights of the townsfolk and congeals this into the musical structure so designed that it is regarded as a "lesson in grace." The Subli tradition, however, has lately expanded into a festival featuring street dancing and involving the town of bauan and Batangas City, and
was lately held to coincide with the province's Foundation Day.

Tours of local attractions take place on a regular basis but you can organize your own tour with just your kids or with a few other families in your neighborhood. You may be
surprised by what companies and organizations will provide free tours of their facilities.

The fire hall is always intriguing to young children. If you call your local fire hall and speak with the fire chief he will be happy to arrange a time for you to stop in with your
children. They will show the kids around, let them see inside the fire engine and if there is time the children can see a fireman in all of his gear. Not only is this fun, it is a safety
precaution for kids. Chances are they will be less scared of a firefighter in his full uniform with a mask if he or she sees one before an emergency. You will have to be
prepared for the tour to be cut short if an emergency is called in. Free Tours around your City
