Kaamulan Festival Malaybalay

Originally posted 06 March 2007

At the recent Kaamulan Festival held annually in the Bukidnon Capital Malaybalay, our town Talakag (where Bethany is located) came second in the street dancing competition.
Kaamulan" is an indigenous Bukidnon term for "gathering" for any purpose such as a datuship ritual, a wedding ceremony, a thanksgiving festival during harvest time, a peace pact, or all of these together. According Bukidnon's provincial website, the festival started in 1977 and lasted 3 days on November 25-27.
This year's festival attracted over 37,500 visitors with all available accommodation over subscribed. Maybe next year Talakag can win the contest outright.
Well done to all those who participated and not forgeting those who helped in the organisation of the dance troupe.
