The Higalas Parade of Floats and Icons 2015 happened last August 27, 2015 was so far, the grandest of its kind for the past few years in celebration for Higalaay Festival of Cagayan de Oro. Participated by known colleges and universities, elementary and high school, fraternities and sororities, establishments, corporations and groups, that made the parade as alive and fun, perfect for a very sunny day. And the very highlight of the event were the giant icons and floats being paraded. From Rodelsa Circle, then along Velez Street, to Limketkai Center, Kagay-anons and tourists crowded on both sides of the the street to witness this year’s Higalas Parade of Floats and icons.

And the winners of this year’s The Higalas Parade of Floats and Icons were announced in front of the main entrance of the Limketkai Mall (in front of Shopwise).

First Place: Concentrix Services Corporation
Second Place: IPI
Third Place: United Architects of the Philippines

Concentrix Services Corporation bagged the first place again and was able to defend their title.

Let us take glimpses of the bright smiles and the feel from images taken on that day.
