Philippines is celebrating many festivals all year round. And this time I will share you a beautiful event being celebrated in Atimonan, Quezon. The Tagultol Festival happens every first and second day of August. It is celebrated usually with street parade which is what I like the most. Spectators are expected to dance with street performers. There are also various cultural programs happening all over the place including mass and processions as well. There’s also a fluvial parade which happens in the afternoon normally on the 2nd day of the fiesta. At night, one can expect to see concerts from local bands, choral, singing and dancing competition showcasing talents of people from Atimonan. All in expression of gratitude towards the years bountiful catch.

Tagultol festival started in year 2003. Tagultol is an old fishing method used by Atimonanins which is derived from the word ugtol which simply means bounce. It consists of a rectangular stone tied at the end of abaca strings dip in honey, calamansi and other similar plants with a bait tied 2 feet above the stone before dipping in the water and moved in a bouncing movement.
The event showcases both cultural and sports activities, talents and beauty contests participated by community leadership and organizations and individuals headed by the local government and people from Atimonan.
