This year’s Higalaay Festival in celebration of the annual City Fiesta will push thru but will be so much different with about 90-95% of all core events will be virtual which everyone can see online in social media.
Initially, the festival logo has also changed now with the letters signifying social distancing.
Among the core events which can be seen on Higalaay Festival official Facebook page as well as at Channel 45 via Parasat Cable are as follows:
- Miss Cagayan de Oro 2020
- Kahimunan Trade Fair
- Oro Photographic Society Online Photo Challenge
- Mindanao Fashion Summit
- Kumbira Culinary Show
Some of the events will also be pre-recorded and still follow minimum public health standards such as wearing of masks, social distancing, respiratory etiquette, and hand washing, among others.
Live coverage will be conducted on religious activities like the Daily Novena and Fluvial Parade which will be limited to only a few pump boats.
Three new events will be introduced in this year’s edition:
- CDO 101 (an information program series)
- Banda de Oro (virtual concert of local bands for frontliners)
- Higalas Art (culture and art works exhibit by Kagay-anons)
Schedules and details of the events will be known in the next few days.
