Tawo Tawo Festival 2019
Video – Bayawan City – Nergos Oriental
It is essential to celebrate the Tawo Tawo Festival 2019 as part of the fiesta celebrations in Bayawan City. The term “tawo tawo” is the Visayan term for a scarecrow. A long time ago, Bayawan was known for producing fine crops such as rice. The economy of the city downgraded when groups of crows feasted upon the fields. Being a religious city, the people turned to faith and their patron saint St. Tomas Villanueva. With the help of the scarecrows or the “tawo tawo”, Bayawan City became once again a progressive and abundant place for harvest.
