Breaking the record as the most festive and biggest fiesta ever in the history of the city, this year's Tsada Kagay-an Festival, is truly a successful celebration.

Mayor Vicente Y. Emano made this pronouncement during his weekly message in this week's flag raising ceremony at the city hall grounds, in recognition of the one-month fiesta celebration which is chaired by City Councilor Jose Benjamin Benaldo.

Mayor Emano said that the celebration of the city fiesta became even more meaningful when no less than President Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo visited the city yesterday to inaugurate the Macapagal Drive that connects Bulua Highway to SM City. The city mayor expressed his gratitude to the people who worked so hard especially the fiesta executive committee for the successful turnout of all the activities both run by the private sector and the city government.

Mayor Emano thanked the Roads and Traffic Administration for making the city'straffic smooth; the Cagayan de Oro City Police Office, the Regional Police Office-10 and the 4th Infantry Division for maintaining the peace and order; the tri-media for their support and the sponsors for their unwavering commitment to the city's progress. The city chief executive also agreed to the proposal of making an ordinance that will henceforth name the city fiesta celebration as Tsada Kagay-an Festival, with the hope of establishing the city's own identity in the many festivals held around the country.

As the city goes global, Mayor Emano hopes that the unity among the city's tri-people and the stable peace and order condition here will continue beyond his term. (City Information Office)
