Carabao Festival is held in Brgy. Tabunok, Palompon, Leyte during the feast of San Isidro Labrador every 14th and 15th of May. It starts with a parade of decorated carabaos during the opening salvo of the novena prior to the feast day as a way of thanksgiving for the countless graces received by the barangay folks. This festival is actually of ispanic origin as Spaniards introduced the carabao to the Philippines which became an indispensable partner of the farmers in cultivating rice and transporting products. This festival was initiated by the very supportive and active leader of Brgy. Tabunok and at the same time the President of the Association of Barangay Council (ABC), Hon. Rene A. Camposano. Indeed a remarkable event with much stunning & colorful presentation. Congratulations ADVANCE HAPPY FIESTA!!!
