The province of Misamis Oriental with Misamis Oriental Governor Yevgeny Vincente “Bambi” Emano celebrated the province’s 86th Anniversary and 3rd Kuyamis Festival on January 5-9, 2016 at the provincial capitol grounds.                         



As the Kuyamis Festival highlights coconut, booths that were showcased were mostly from coconuts. Of the eight municipalities that participated the booth exhibit, our municipality of Jasaan has seized first place. The booth was inspired by one of the Jasaan’s tourist destinations which is the century old Immaculate Concepcion Parish Church.



The weeklong celebration also highlights the Search for Miss Earth Philippines – Misamis Oriental participated by 14 candidates including Jasaan’s representative, Nina Alyanna Ycong who garnered Best in Festival Gown (from trash to class), and best in Eco Video that featured the Sailfin Lizard. The Eco Video will be seen in the Laguindingan Airport throughout the year.
