First of its kind in the Province of Sorsogon, Linusak Festival was officially launched today at Barangay Incarizan, in the historical town of Magallanes, southeastern part of Luzon.
While Cadena de Amor Festival, which is held every May in Siuton, revives local oral traditions and Regatta Festival sa Bagatao in Behia boasts fun water activities, Linusak Festival highlights one of the locality’s native delicacies – the linusak [pounded cassava/banana].
Local head, Punong Barangay Rannie Llamado confirmed that at least ten (10) sacks of cassava, locally known as balinghoy / kamoteng kahoy and a few bunches of banana were used up to prepare delicious linusak.
[Blogger’s Note: More pictures will be uploaded tom. This post has to be published now to coincide with the launching day and hopefully it gets updated soon. I’ll have to ask more pics from Carmen.]
Meanwhile, here is a photo taken in one of the festivities…
The festival also featured a street presentation organized by the Magallanes North District ALS Coordinator, Ms. Carmen D. Burton.
Btw, here is an almost raw video documentation of the street festival an onlooker recorded.
Hey, just in case you are curious, here is what linusak look like.
