Wednesday, January 30, 2013
THE tradition continues as Kagay-anon International holds another year of gathering for Kagay-anons all over the world dubbed "Tapok,” a bi-annual celebration held mostly in the United States of America and Canada.
The Tourism department in Northern Mindanao Region announced the holding of this year's 14th Tapok of Kagay-anons on July 25 to 28 in Ontario, Canada.
"Tapok" aims to share updates on investments, tourism current events and other important information on Cagayan de Oro City. The event also serves as a venue to reunite families, friends, relatives and classmates who are Kagay-anons and who have lived abroad for quite some time.
"Tapok" is a Bisayan term which means “to gather or assemble” in one particular place.
The concept commenced as a dream that came to reality and began the history of this remarkable activity for Kagay-anons abroad which internationally started in 1982 in Chicago.
It is usually attended by an average of 500 Kagay-anons including church leaders, local government executives, congress representatives and tourism officials.
