One of the usual highlights of every Kagay-an Festival is the Folkloric Street Dance Competition which was done last August 26, 2011. The event was well participated this time compared to last year. This is also the first time that the competition was opened to other places outside Cagayan de Oro. Zamboanga Sibugay, Gingoog City and Initao Misamis Oriental took part of the said competition to make it more exciting and colorful.
