The week-long KABAYA FESTIVAL in Opol, Misamis Oriental has just kicked off and the Opol Boardwalk and Festival Booths are drawing the crowd as the town of Opol has rolled out activities which culminate on Sunday, September 4, the feast day of Our Lady of Consolation (Birhen sa Kalipay). Kabaya is the Higaonon term for Kalipay.

To expand the feast and answer the call for diversity, inclusivity and equality, Opol has integrated the Higaonon culture in the celebration of the feast since six of the town’s hinterland barangays have IPs in the area. Watch this highlight video by Strat Pro Photography.
