August is here, and you know what that means, Higala? If you answered, “Higalaay Festival,” then you are absolutely CORRECT!
Unfortunately, with the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic and the rising threat of its Delta variant, the annual physical merriments we Kagay-anons used to have will once again be postponed. Though, thanks to the internet, we’ll still enjoy the virtual events the city government has prepared in celebration of the festival and, of course, to honour the city’s patron saint, Sr San Agustin!
Mamistahay, even those who are not invited, is one of the famous and old traditions we do during fiestas. However, because of the strict quarantine restrictions, RSVP to your celebrations should also be strictly limited to household members ONLY to help curb the spiking cases in the city.
Celebrate Higalaay Festival and order your favourite fiesta putahi from the following local catering and/or food services that will surely make your tummies satisfied and are 100% swak sa budget nga maka ingong gyud ka’g “worth it!”
