The provincial government of Misamis Oriental officially commences the virtual activities of the 8th Kuyamis Festival and 91st Founding Anniversary of the province. During the flag raising rites, Governor Bambi Emano graces the ceremonial unveiling of this year’s festival.
One of the highlights of this year’s festivity is the 8th Kuyamis Photo and Handicraft Exhibit at Centrio Ayala Mall Event Center. Indigenous Peoples (IPs) in Misamis Oriental made all the handicrafts with earnestness and passion highlighting the coconut-product as the main design.
Kuyamis Festival is staged every year as a Founding Anniversary of Misamis Oriental. Kuyamis is derived from the coconut, locally called “Kuyamis” which is plentiful all throughout the borders of Misamis Oriental.
This time, precautionary measures are highly observed in all activities.
“We will continue with the 8th Kuyamis Festival, but we will also observe all the basic safety protocols to have a successful celebration” Gov. Bambi exudes.
With optimism and high hopes, Governor Bambi Emano believes that the conduct of the 8th Kuyamis Festival would still be successful despite these tough times.
