Cagayan de Oro City is known as the City of Golden Friendship because of the hospitality that the Kagay-anons offer to the people. Kagay-anons are very welcoming when foreigners or people from other parts of the Philippines come to visit the city. Tourists do not only visit the city for its friendly people but also because of the spectacular destinations that the city has.
Last month was a busy month for all the Kagay-anons. It was a whole month celebration of the St. Augustine Feast Day and with this, different activities were conducted. The month long celebration of the feast of St. Augustine was another way to show that Cagayan de Oro City is a worthy place to visit. The activities prepared were not only meant for the Kagay-anons but also for the tourists to witness and join. Last 24th and 25th of August, it was definitely a fantastic weekend because of the activities and shows that were in store in those said dates.
August 24 and 25 was indeed weekendtastic because of the shows that had happened. Kapamilya stars Julia Montes, Enrique Gil and Enchong Dee performed for their Kapamilya Karavan show last August 24. On the same date, the coronation of Miss Cagayan de Oro 2013 was held at Lim Ket Kai Atrium. August 25, Kapamilya actor Coco Martin also had a show as part of the Kapamilya Karavan. SM City had its last day of the three day sale and also a fireworks display. During the fireworks display, the shoppers and visitors stopped for a while to witness the amazing pyrotechnics. Some took pictures of the fireworks and some recorded it using their phones and video cameras.
On the feast day, the devout Catholic attended the morning mass at St. Augustine Cathedral. The big church was filled with Catholic Kagay-anons and along with the church-goers were the priests from different parishes of Cagayan de Oro City. The fiesta day was celebrated in merriment. Kapuso and Kapamilya stars visited the city to join the Kagay-anons in celebrating the fiesta. Rock bands from Metro Manila also performed to give entertainment.
The month long fiesta celebration is an indication that Cagayan de Oro City is a city in boom and bloom. Aside from the tourist destinations that the city has, another thing that makes the city prosperous are the increasing real estate properties developing here; attracting more businessmen and prospect buyers to invest here. Cheers to all the Kagay-anons!
