Kaamulan festival 2007 opens in Bukidnon

For a change, Bukidnon’s annual Kaamulan festival opens on February 10 with ambassadors of at least 10 countries invited to grace it, the province’s tourism officer said.Elsie Gail Ocaya, Bukidnon tourism officer said the month long Kaamulan festival will do away with politicians to avoid the hassles of election politicking.
She said in the move they also would like to elevate the status of the indigenous festival to the international arena with the presence of the ambassadors.
Ocaya said invitations were already sent to the ambassadors of countries like United Kingdom, United States, Japan, China, Canada, Germany, Australia, New Zealand, France, and Korea.
But Ocaya said they are yet to receive confirmation from the diplomats’ offices. She gave no details on when the diplomats will arrive.
Ocaya said this year’s theme is “Spiritual Awakening”. Manila Archbishop Gaudencio Cardinal Rosales, who was Bishop of Malaybalay prior to reassignment in Luzon in the early 1990s, will give the keynote speech on the province’s foundation day on March 10.

    A side note on Kaamulan…

    Thought you’d like to know that the Kaamulan spirit has traveled all the way from Bukidnon to Palm Beach, FL, United States. A year ago, we chose the concept of Kaamulan to introduce Philippine Culture to Palm Beach Americans, and at the same time help raise money for a local church here in Florida.

    The show is this Saturday, with attendance expected to be 95% White-Americans, and 5% Filipinos. I might be wrong and Palm Beach Pinoys might wise up and show up in droves but…we’ll see.

    This is the write-up that one of the newspapers in our area put up on their latest online and print issue:

    Keep the fire burning🙂
