IKalingas and visitors from other places, we welcome you as we celebrate this festivity with light hearts! Our province have come a long way, from our notorious reputation regarding our peace and order situation which we have to admit have painted our province as well as iKalingas in a negative light.
However, due to the partnership of the leaders and the cooperation of everyone, KALINGA as a hidden gem of the Cordilleras is finally out to conquer attraction with its blinding light.
The celebration of the 24th Founding Anniversary and the 3rd Bodong Festival is officially opened with the banging of the gong spearheaded by the Provincial Governor Hon. Jocel C. Baac.
This festival is a testament to our unity and perseverance in maintaining what we have worked so far, we may have our differences but likened to the different style of beating the gongs all over Kalinga,as one, we are beautifully harmonized and with such, we can progress better.
Furthermore, the success of our endeavors towards change can never be realized without the Father's guidance.
Thus, our wholehearted agreement to the statement that we have always taken our comfort, our struggle to the Lord because we have faith in Him.
