The colorful Igal ma Lan of the Agal-agal Festival last September 25, 2017 was a blast! And to top it, Gov. Rashidin Matba gave 1 million pesos each to the Top 3 winning municipalities which are Sapa-Sapa, Simunul, and Bongao. Other municipalities also received 300,000 pesos each.

More than the prizes are the happy faces of everyone during the festival where the unique and rich culture of Tawi-Tawi was showcased.

Agal-agal Fest 2017 was one of the highlights of the 44th Kamahardikaan Tawi-Tawi celebration held at Languyan last September 23-27. It started in 2001 to give emphasis of the province's pride for being the largest producer of seaweed in the Philippines.

The Provincial Tourism Office of Tawi-Tawi, in behalf of the whole provincial government and the Agal-agal Festival Committee headed by Dr. Filemon G. Romero, wishes to thank the different media teams for coming and covering the event, the DOT-ARMM for its all-out support, and all the municipalities to participate in this year's Agal-agal Fest and Kamahardikaan Tawi-Tawi celebration.
