4th Kabaybayonan Festival: Celebrating Opol's Summer Beach Event

The Municipality of Opol in the province of Misamis Oriental is a popular destination for beach lovers, and has been a weekend getaway for families and friends wanting to go for a swim, or just being laid back, and enjoying the majestic view of the Macajalar Bay. Also, Opol has been getting its chunk from the fame of the province' tourism industry, thanks to the consistency of the province' tourism slogan "Explore MisOr", and the hand-on-hand partnership of the Local Government Unit of Opol, and private organizations and establishments.

But don't you know the this famous beach stretch celebrates their own festival particularly during summer?

Kabaybayonan Festival, now on it's 4th year is Municipality of Opol's very own event that celebrates during the summer season, technically right after the Holy Week celebration.
