Lemery town in Batangas is staging the Sigpawan Festival on April 8 to promote its agro-tourism.

The festival will showcase the rich culture and natural resources of Lemery, with booths displaying a variety of the town’s agricultural products, native delicacies and its famous sinaing na tulingan.

Sigpaw
is a small net with a handle that is used by fishermen to scoop fish and catch shrimps and small fry along the town’s shorelines. Farmers also use it to pick fruits from trees.

The one-day event will start with a Mass at the town’s parish church, followed by a fluvial parade to the fishport.

Other activities lined up for the day include a wall-painting contest, live band performances, and a guided tour of the city’s historical sites such as Taal Volcano, Taal Basilica, Fantasy World, and the Pansipit River, which is famous for its maliputo fish.

The Sigpawan Festival is being organized and coordinated by the Lemery Batangas Development Foundation Inc. and the municipal tourism office.
