Bagrong Tacurong Celebrates Inugyunay Festival this 2011!

Although a more “tamed” and “thrift” celebrations surprised many, this year’s Inugyunay Festival still provided entertainment for most Tacurongnons last night. For those who don’t know what Inugyunay mean,  inugyun” is hiligaynon/ilonggo word which mean “unite”. Thus “inugyunay” mean “bonding” together, “to band” or “to unite”.  As what my previous post say about Inugyunay before;

Tacurong’s Inugyunay Festival is a monthlong celebration which starts with spectacular, tree lighting contest, nightly cultural shows, bazaars, plaza night market  and capped by fireworks display at the climax of the celebration. Celebrated by the city of  Tacurong  from the second week of December to the first week of January the following year, many Tacurongnon and visitors gather in the city plaza to watch the colorful and lively lighted trees and the free nightly cultural shows or to just stroll around the plaza market.

This year though, it’s a lot different. No Light a Tree Contest, only one huge Christmas tree in the center field with a manger and the holy family.

Duration of the Inugyunay Festival was shortened but there are still nightly performances by the different institutions of the city. Lastly, the fireworks display was shortened also, but many said it was very well organized with better “ka-booms” and spectacular fireworks exhibition.

One thing that didn’t changed though, is the deluge of so many people from all over Tacurong and nearby towns and cities. Some of our ka-baryo’ s brought their whole clan and their “kuliglig” in the city area as early as 3:00PM! The fireworks is slated to start at 10:00PM. There is literally hundreds and even thousands of spectators I could see in the city plaza area. That’s not counting those watching the show from the comforts of their rooftops.

Inugyunay Festival really kicked as an added festivity of Tacurong City, aside from Talakudong Festival. People are now beginning to love the celebration and are expecting nothing but spectacular during this festival. I guess this would be a tip-off, to the government and private sector, to take Inugyunay as one main tourism-business venture that’ll definitely make the people of Tacurong, happy!

Bagrong Tacurong!
