The Iligan City Diyandi Festival 2011
is the official title for the city’s month long cultural celebration. If I’m not mistaken, Iligan City is the only city in the entire Philippines that celebrates its fiesta in one entire month! It concludes with the feast day of Saint Michael the Archangel on September 29.
Established to promote Iligan’s cultural identity, the 2011 Diyandi Festival was formally established as the tourism name of Iligan City in 2004.
Diyandi loosely means “celebrate.” So if you say “mag-Diyandi ta,” it means “let’s celebrate.”
Among the highlights of this year’s Diyandi Festival 2011 are the Miss Iligan 2011 pageant, the Iligan Female Star Power singing competition, the Male Pop Star event and the 5th season of Iligan Star. There will also be a Kapuso Night on September 28. Mindanaoan.com will keep you all updated 🙂
