On the night of the feast day, Centrio Mall held its own Pyromusical Fireworks along the Cagayan de Oro River.
It was the first ever fireworks display held at the river. The staging area was at the temporary levee of the under construction JR Borja Bridge. There were initial apprehensions late in the afternoon after a rains started to pour in the city. Fortunately, the rains stopped and the much anticipated pyromusical began past 7:30pm. Based on its success, I believe this will be replicated next year. So we might see two fireworks next year, one in uptown and the other at downtown. See the photos below.
