Kagay-an Festival’s Golden Float and Drum & Bugle Parade and Competition 2011

Cagayan de Oro City’s Golden Float Parade and Competition last Saturday, August 27, 2011 was very successful. The Kagay-anons went to the streets to witness one of the awaited activities of the Golden Friendship’s Feast of St. Augustine. We, the CDOBloggers, were also there to cover for the event.

I found this parade SPECIAL!

It is the first time this year that the organizers of this activity combined the Golden Float and Drum & Bugle groups in one parade. That means to say, there were no dull moments as we wait for all the floats to pass by.

As usual, the different Drum & Bugle Corps. paraded in their colorful costumes and showcased their dancing and “instrument” abilities. Every group wowed the spectators!

What made it more special was the participation of City Central School’s SPED CENTER students. We are so glad that the teachers and the organizers made an effort and have gone a long way to let these children be included in activities such as this parade. Yes, they have talents too. And they can show to the whole world that they are worthy to be mainstreamed in our society. This is one great step to their full inclusion to the regular setting.

It was a wonderful sight!

Of course, the highlight goes to the different floats paraded. The floats were very spectacular. Each entry was made creatively and creators gave attention to details for sure. Cheers to the winning entry!

Despite being under the heat of the sun, people stayed and witnessed this once-in-a-year celebration! Till next years! Happy Fiesta!
