Iligan City Mindanao fiesta to feature Higantes

Here’s another reason why you should all go and visit Iligan City, Mindanao during their fiesta month this year (September 2009 up to first week of October 2009). “Higantes” will be among the attractions in this year’s celebration of the Iligan City fiesta. These “higantes” (giants), made of paper mache, cloth and other indigenous materials, will be part of the “Kasadya Street Dancing and Merrymaking” event.


Similar to Angono, Rizal’s “Higantes,” (see inset picture) the entries will vie for a cash prize of P20,000.00.

Each “higante” entry must not exceed 12 feet in height. Organizers also say that the entries must depict two characters linked to the Iligan City fiesta namely St. Michael and Luzbel (Lucifer).

I guess this will be one fun event to take photos of! Wow, Mindanaoan would love to go and cover this πŸ™‚ Who wants to come along? πŸ˜€

Happy fiesta Iligan!

Happy fiesta to all my fellow Mindanaoans over there πŸ™‚
