BUKIDNON NEWS | KAAMULAN FESTIVAL 2011 – The Kaamulan Festival is the biggest festival in the Province of Bukidnon so it’s but natural that people want to know if there are any updates with regard to the preparations of the 2011 Kaamulan Festival celebration. My ever-trusty Girl Friday paid the Bukidnon Tourism Office a visit yesterday and she gathered that, indeed, the Provincial Government of Bukidnon is already busy with the preparations for the much-awaited Bukidnon Kaamulan 2011.
In fact, Bukidnon Governor Alex Calingasan has issued Memorandum Circular Number 213-2010 which calls for all department heads and requires that all help out in the preparations.
Incidentally, May Flor Beltran-Intong, the overall chairperson of the Kaamulan festivities, is reportedly abroad and is on leave. She will be back next year. Which means that there will be a new Kaamulan 2011 Overall Chairman.
The Kaamulan Festival is a yearly gathering of all 7 hill tribes of Bukidnon. It is the largest festival in the province. It usually begins on the 3rd week of February and ends until March 10 of that year. March 10 is the foundation day of Bukidnon.
Most of the duly accredited and recognized Kaamulan events are held in Malaybalay and Valencia.
