Tourists in the Philippines would love to visit fiestas/festivals around the country because of its colorful theme and of course happy celebration. This month of August, there’s going to be a month-long celebration of events around Cagayan de Oro City. Since it’s fiesta week, there’s gonna be more Higalaay Festival events to be celebrated until the very end of August. But the most significant events of the week will be on the 27th and 28th of August.
There’s going to be Higalas Parade of Floats and Icons from Rodelsa Circle-Velez-CMRecto to Limketkai Center at 7:00AM of August 27 and Bisperas Fireworks Display at Duaw Kagay-an Park 8:00PM of the same date.
On the 28th there’s going to be a Religious Procession along Fernandez Street - Velez Street - Capistrano Street to St. Augustine Cathedral at 4:00AM and Fluvial Procession starting at Macajalar Bay to Cagayan River to Duaw Kagay-an Park in the morning of the same date.
If I am a tourist in CDO, where would I be staying considering the affordability and accessibility of the hotel to and from the events happening around? Well, I could highly recommend the Pacifico Boutique Hotel.
