Katagman Festival is here once again! The people of Oton are celebrating it with more fun activities this year and we’re so excited to not just witness but also join as well. Katagman Festival 2012 is where we Ogtonganons show our pride in promoting our rich culture and history through various events. Special thanks to Councilor Migs Flores for providing us all with this schedule.
I am so blessed to be living in Oton, one of the attractive rural communities in Iloilo. Oton is a first class municipality in the province of Iloilo, about 30 minutes west of the city. I get to enjoy the hustle and bustle of the city then go home to my lovely, quiet town at the end of the day. We’ve been living here for 11 years now (we used to live in Jaro). And so far I am loving my life here.
This is a re-post of Hon. Juan Miguel Flores’ post on Facebook. I am a proud Ogtonganon and I hope this will reach some Ogtonganons as well. This will really help our parish. Two thumbs up to Migs for taking care of our church and its surroundings. We need more people like you! And like I said on Facebook – just keep on doing what you’re doing, there will always be people willing to help an honest person like you with honest goals.
After I finished casting my vote, Tim and I decided to go to town to have lunch at Allan’s Talabahan. This is one of the “tourist attactions” of Oton. In my opinion, they serve the best talabas in Iloilo. But don’t listen to me though, I may be biased because I live in Oton. Haha! But nothing compares to Allan’s baked talaba! It’s the best! Allan’s Talabahan is located at Zulueta Street and they will open a branch at Anhawan Beach Resort and Spa soon.
Oton is celebrating its 438nd Foundation Day this week through the Katagman Festival. The Katagman festival was originally names Ogtonganon festival which is derived from the name of the locals -”Ogtongs.”
