The theme for this year’s Miss Kagay-an beauty pageant is Hollywood while the theme of Kagay-an Festival is “CdeO back on our feet and moving forward…a City in Bloom, in Blossom and in Boom.” The 2012 Miss Kagay-an is one of the core events of this year’s CDO fiesta in honor of patron Saint Augustine.

By the way, people have been asking me of my reactions/thoughts on the results of the beauty pageant – all I can say is – perhaps next time beauty pageant candidates would learn not to belittle other cities and instead be proud of their birth place, be it “a very small town” or a large city.
Congratulations to the organizers of the Miss Kagay-an 2012 pageant!
