Cagayan de Oro Fiesta

Every August 28th, the whole province of Cagayan de Oro gets transformed into an entirely new entity of color, merriment and wonder as they celebrate their yearly festival. Floats, parades, dances and concerts are aplenty as they celebrate and give thanks to another fruitful year. This is a week long event so there is no reason to miss a one of a kind Lomographic photo opportunity. The locals are accommodating and gamely smile for the camera, proud of their heritage as Cagayanos. Getting there is a 1 ½ hour flight from Manila with rates depending on the airline. Accommodations are readily available but book in advance if you're going to the festival since many people go there.
