Our city, Cagayan de Oro, is packed with festive activities for the month of August on Higalaay 2017 Festival.
Let us read a little background of Higalaay Festival below.
The Higalaay Festival (formerly known as Kagay-an Festival, then to Higalaay Kagay-an Festival in 2014) is a festival held each year in Cagayan de Oro, Philippines, every 28th day of August, celebrating the feast day of St. Augustine – patron saint of the city. (Wikipedia)
If you’re wondering what Higalaay Festival means, the answer is “Friendship Festival“. Higalaay comes from the Cebuano word “higala” which means “friend”. This is based from what the city of Cagayan de Oro is being tagged as the City of Golden Friendship.
For the city events for this month, it will be posted on a separate blog post.
Meanwhile, here are some of the events from one of the malls in the city, Centrio Mall.
