|This August, Cagayan de Oro City will be buzzing with excitement and anticipation for its biggest cultural event, the Kagay-an Festival. An annual celebration in honor of the city's patron Saint Augustine, Cagayan de Oro comes alive with parades, street dancing, trade fairs, cultural shows, beauty pageants and other fun competitions, concerts, and of course, mouth-watering fiesta fare, which is sure to whet the appetites of visiting tourists and locals alike.
This year, the city has especially prepared some new activities for the festival which runs from August 20 to 28, aside from the usual aforementioned happenings: the “Garbo sa Oro 2009: Outstanding Kagay-anons”, an event which will give recognition to Kagay-anons that have brought the city pride and honor, and the “Regional Trade Fair 2009”, which will showcase and sell locally-made products.
Indeed, with such interesting events lined up, it would be no surprise that the Kagay-an Festival will once again attract people eager to be part of the colorful activities. Visitors would be wise to find an accessible place to stay within the area so they can enjoy their festival experience with comfort.
One such place is the Kingston Lodge, a hotel in Cagayan de Oro that offers 15 cozy yet inexpensive guestrooms that all come complete with air-conditioning, private toilet and hot/cold shower, cable TV, radio, coffee/tea maker, mini-bar, and Wi-Fi access. Other facilities of the hotel include a full-service restaurant that boasts of both local and international cuisine, an outdoor swimming pool, and car rental service among many others.
Located near Masterson Avenue, Kingston Lodge is just five minutes away from the airport, malls, and golf courses, making it a convenient base for guests that are either planning to explore the city or simply keen on a relaxing vacation. Most significantly perhaps, this Cagayan de Oro hotel also offers discounts to long-staying guests, making it the ideal accommodation of choice for those who are in town for the whole duration of the Kagay-an Festival.
