Agusan National High School Contingents Kahimunan Festival 2010 Champion
Spectators lined along the street wet and unmindful of the cold to watch and took some pictures every time contingents from Agusan National High School, Libertad National High School, NORMISIST Cabadbaran, Libertad Women’s Organization and Butuan City Hall passes by.
Different images of the Sto. Niño. Devotees of the Santo Nino understand Kahimunan as a prayer, a dance. It is an indigenous rite for the living: the actuation of thanksgiving, an offering. A plea for heavenly grace and earthly favors.
