Thinking of visiting the CARAGA Region here in Mindanao soon? The Caraga Region is where Butuan City is. Caraga, an administrative region, is also the newest region in the Philippines. Composed of 4 provinces namely Agusan del Norte, Agusan del Sur, Surigao del Norte and Surigao del Sur, CARAGA is also home to 3 cities - Surigao, Bislig and Butuan.

It can also mean a datuship ritual, a wedding ceremony, a thanksgiving festival during harvest time, a peace pact, or all of these together.
I was furnished a tentative schedule of activities for this year's Kaamulan Festival celebration in the Province of Bukidnon by the Bukidnon Tourism Office and although I can say that there aren't that many changes from previous celebrations, there are still a lot of things ...
