Higalaay Festival is Cagayan de Oro’s primary grandest festival celebrated every 28th of August, celebrating the feast day of St. Augustine – Patron Saint of the City. Higalaay comes from the word “Higala” means “Friend” since CDO is known as the City of Golden Friendship. It has been a tradition that every Kagay-anon celebrates with.

With that, Missy Bon Bon organized an advanced mini fiesta event entitled:  “Viva Missy Fiesta!”. Together with the fellow bloggers and guests, a fun filled and hippy festival event happened where participants are to play Filipino games incorporating the newest MBB pasalubong namely Missy Chips, Barquillos, Missy Peanuts, Strawberry and Melon Marshmallows, Cinnamon and BBQ Toast, Peanut Marzipan, Peanut Brittle, Polvoron, Piñato, Piggy Sue and Sprinkly Cake.

Here are some of the snapshots from the event:
