Saad, a Hiligaynon term for “vow”, depicts Leganesnons’ intense spirituality and religious faith. The festival is also a celebration of thanksgiving for the blessings received from God through the intercession of St. Vincent Ferrer, the town’s patron. The festival is primarily a praise and worship presentation that combines Leganes’ folktale with contemporary way of worship to choreographed steps.
