Kaamulan Festival 2012 : The Festive Mode

Every year has a lot of surprises. A lot of people are coming to witness the Festival, especially this Kaamulan Festival 2012. Some are coming from abroad.

This year, the Provincial Tourism had prepared so much for the forthcoming festivities, that includes among others, the provision of concrete jogger's lane along the capitol ground
Food and Restaurant Cottages
I've noticed that almost all of the activities and events last year were still adopted in this year's schedule of activities

Aside from previous year's activities, some more outdoor and sports events like Adventure race, Half Marathon, 1st Kaamulan Fun Run and even a photo exhibit/contest were included to have more fun in Malaybalay City in this year's celebration of the Kaamulan Festival.

Jogger's Lane with fountain
This morning, I accompanied my daughter to her school, the St. John's School, for MTAP training in preparation for a division meet level on February 16, that coincides with the start of the Kaamulan Festival 2012 

I then observed that everyone in the capitol ground were busy constructing their food and restaurant cottages and other cottages prepared for Bukidnon LGUs. Small cottages surrounding the capitol ground were also under construction. 

Entrance to Capitol Ground
Even the jogger's lane and the entrance to the Capitol Ground are almost finish. The target is before the street dancing competition.

Kaamulan Festival will usually starts in February 16 and the culmination is on March 10. The latter date marks the anniversary of the Bukidnon province in 1917.

You can now feel the Festive Mode. Fiesta banners were already in-placed along the Fortich Street where all the participating street dancers shall perform their dance number on March 03, according to the schedule. 

The photo below is the road going to the Capitol Ground. Beside that road is the Plaza Rizal and the San Isidro Cathedral Parish Church.
The two photos below show the Fortich Street where all the spectators for the street dancing competition converge to witness the genuine indigenous tribe dance of Bukidnon. 
As a bit of advice, if you like to witness the Kaamulan Festival Street Dancing Competition, just be watchful with your belongings and be sensible. You might not know the mishap would happen.
So come on March 03, mark your calendar and witness the Kaamulan Festival 2012 street dancing competition.

  2. The banner-filled streets of Malaybalay is similar to Vigan. Our street here is just the same as that during our fiesta seasons.
