The Lingganay Festival got its name from the Waray word Lingganay which means a ‘bell’. The festival was conceptualized sometime in 1995 based on th legend of the town’s lost ‘golden bell’. It was said that one time when the moro pirates surprised the people, they tried to fled away with the bell.

When they reached the Bakga River, they threw the golden bell into the deepest part of the river to prevent it from getting into the hands of the moro pirates. Until today, the bell has not been found but it is said that its sound can be barely heard coming from the bottom of the river.

It is celebrated in conjunction with the town’s fiesta on the 19th of June. According to oral history, since 1995, Lingganay has been joining festival dance competitions especially during the Pintados Kasadyaan.

The rustic town of Alang-Alang in Leyte province amazingly did it again in last Sunday’s Sinulog Festival 2013, the biggest and well-participated tribe presentation in the Philippines.

The Lingganay Festival, the crowd’s favorite and most cheered contingent retained its crown, and emerged as grand champion, for the nth time, in the free interpretation category besting many other equally adorably-colorful contingents from all over the country

Lingganay tribe brought home with them the grand prize amounting to P1 million, while Lumad Basakanon of San Nicolas Cebu City landed in 2nd place and earned P500 thousand. Ranked 3rd in the same category is Tribu Himag-uhaw of Masbate and took home the P300 thousand cash prize.  Read More:  http://www.manilachannel.com/general-news/cebu-fest-leyte-town-made-it-again/
