The Lawig Festival name takes its foundation from the Bisayan word, “Lawig” – meaning, “to sail on” – which its founders and organizers envision to crystalize the Palomponganon’s relentless optimism, courage and fighting spirit in facing life’s challenges and opportunities for growth.

Organized and spearheaded by the Local Government Unit of Palompon, the 1st Lawig Festival was held December 02, 2011 and saw the participation of 12 colorful contingents, all from within its municipal jurisdiction.

Dancing to the tribal beat of their respective drum and bugle corps, the festival streetdancing parade promptly started at 7:00AM and snaked its way around town ending up at the wharf area where the final showdown competition was held.  Read More:  https://gerryruiz.wordpress.com/2011/12/06/palompons-1st-lawig-festival-2011/
