Tambobo Festival at Ajuy: A Thanksgiving
Ilonggos at Ajuy will celebrate their annual thanksgiving with fun and excitement at its Tambobo festival this September 8-10, 2011.
What’s a tambobo anyway? The word tambobo is a Hiligaynon word for a storerage or warehouse in which agricultural products such as rice or other goods are stored until there is a need or demand. The same is true to define the Tambobo Festival of Ajuy but with slight variation. Instead of keeping their products on their tambobo, the people of Ajuy showcases their incomparable and unparalled human and natural resources through exhibits, cultural performances, and of course, a lavish feast as a thanksgiving to God for this year’s abundance of crops.
Join the people of Ajuy in celebrating their blessings through the Tambobo festival!
