Lawig Festival 2022

Since 2011, Palompon has been celebrating the annual town fiesta with the LAWIG Festival every December 2nd. LAWIG is a Visayan term that means to sail on. It expresses the Palomponganon’s faith in the providence, protection, and guidance of the Almighty through the intercession of St. Francis Xavier, the town’s patron saint.
This year’s Lawig Festival is a dance offering to St Francis Xavier by the seven contingents from Palompon East District Elementary and High School, Palompon North District Elementary and High School, Palompon South District Elementary and High School, and the Palompon Institute of Technology. The awarding of winners of the Higantes Competition, spearheaded by the Sangguniang Kabataan, highlighted the event.
The Festival ended with a unity dance of all lead dancers together with the municipal officials, Sangguniang Bayan members, tourism council officers, agency and school heads, and community members.
Lawig kamo! Lawig kita! Viva Senior San Francisco Javier!!!
Lawig kitang tanan!!!
