Tinagba Festival
Tinagba Festival is a harvest-offering celebration which also coincides on the feast of Our Lady of Lourdes. Farmers parade in carabao-drawn carts filled with the best of local produce, these are blessed at mass and are distributed to the needy. This feast originated from the early rituals of ancient Bicolanos who offered their harvest to their Gods as a way of thanksgiving and to ask more bountiful harvest.
