Tawi-Tawi's Agal-Agal (Seaweeds) Festival

The industry of Agal-Agal gave birth to Agal-Agal (Seaweeds) Festival in Tawi-Tawi. It highlights the annual celebration of the province's "Kamahardikaan." Celebrated every September 25, these festivities were unique because of the inclusion of seaweeds as materials for costumes and props. Agal-Agal seedlings were displayed while food products made with seaweeds like leche flan were a hit. Add to this a Knotting contest that used agal-agal as props highlighting the prominence of seaweeds as a major source of livelihood in the province. Seaweeds are "pot of gold at the end of a rainbow" for the locals.
