IWAG CHRISTMAS FESTIVAL OF LIGHTS
Municipality of Pototan
Every 16th of December
If you are wondering where you can find the best Christmas lights in Iloilo, then look no further. The IWAG Christmas Festival of Lights in Pototan annually celebrates this must-see holiday attraction for the entire family. It was in 1997 when a group of Pototanons (IWAG) organized themselves and had since become a strong and dedicated partner of its Municipal Government in the preparation and the celebration of lights every December.
Since then, the celebration of the Christmas Festival of Lights has become a tradition not only of the people of Pototan but the entire llonggo community that they look forward to each year. It was declared by the Department of Tourism, Regional Office as the “Christmas Capital of Western Visayas.” An added attraction is the tribal dance competition.
