The province of Misamis Occidental comes alive every first week of  November as it celebrates the Pasungko Festival. It is a festival of thanksgiving which is spearheaded by the Subanen tribe, the most dominant and prevalent group in the province.  ‘Pasungko’ – a Subanen word which means “Thanksgiving after a fruitful harvest”, provides a glimpse into the colorful culture of the Subanen people. The festival was competed by 16 contingents with their respective type of performances showcasing the Subanen tradition, heritage, culture and its musical instrument made from bamboos and agong which amazed the judges and audiences. After the ritual showdown, Tangub City performed their Sinanduloy Festival.   Sinanduloy – a term which loosely translates to a mixture of songs and dances. It adapted the name owing to the different dancers, singers, instrumentalists and creative individuals who comprise its roster of members.
