Come September, Iliganons once again celebrate the month-long festival – the Diyandi Festival sa Iligan 2012. The celebration kicked off last Sept. 1 with the grand opening of the Coke Village - Taboan sa Iligan at Brgy. Tubod followed by the Grand Launching of Diyandi Festival 2012 at the Public Plaza and the announcement of the winners of this year’s Iligan Blogging Contest. The event also signalled the start of this years’ Tourism Month and Fiesta Celebration on September 29.
This years’ festival banner bears the slogan “ Discover and Experience Iligan – Like Iligan!” which is very appropriate for this blogsite – Explore Iligan.
Everyone is called to “discover” Iligan and make this year’s fiesta celebration grand, cheerful and jovially celebratory.
While retaining most of the previous traditional activities, this year's fiesta will see improved content and broad participation from different sectors. While most of the activities are crowd-drawers, preparations are being done for the Kasadya Street Dancing and Merry Making – one of the most anticipated events - having the most number of spectators both in the streets and in the showdown venue proper.
Other activities include Indigay sa Lechon, Miss Iligan Pageant, Pagana Food and Drink Festival, Tartanilla Express Ride, Waterfalling Adventure, and a lot more.
