Glan @ 105: Moving towards progress through tourism and cultural preservation.
Sarangani's grandest fiesta, Lubi-Lubi Festival sa Glan, the oldest municipality in Soccsksargen, running from Oct 3-8, 2019. MagLubi2x na ta!
Municipality of Glan, is located at the southernmost tip of the Philippines, Glan boasts of pristine shorelines dotted with strips of powdery white-sand beach resorts facing the Celebes Sea which, hands down, is among the Philippines' best beaches. Among the earliest Christian towns in Mindanao, Glan has heaps to offer both for tourists and investors. Colonial-era structures make Glan even more alluring to visitors.
Every October, Glan showcases the Lubi-Lubi Festival. There is more to the costumes, choreography and musicality in this yearly competition.
The colors and faces of Lubi-Lubi Festival every 8th of October reflect Glan's industry and tradition altogether.
Almost 90 percent of the town's total land area is planted with coconuts; town folks have both the old and new ways to make a living out of it, from the tree's roots to its leaves; beverages to handicrafts to manufactured products.
Street-dancing groups compete in musicality, choreography and costume using indigenous materials from the coconut.
Lubi-Lubi Festival reflects an old tradition of Glan, the province's oldest town. Each competing group showcases a particularly old religious belief of the people about the coconut tree; animistic beliefs are brought to life in choreography by rituals of reverence to the tree as a source of blessings such as wind, water and rain, fire, good health, and even life.
The Lubi-Lubi Festival celebrates coconut being the major product of Glan which is also one of the oldest town's of Mindanao at 97 on October 8, 2011. Lubi-Lubi performers wearing costumes made of coconut materials dance in the streets where Hispanic houses still stand today.
Glan, also known as the "Coco Queen of the South" and the oldest town in Southern and Central Mindanao, is Sarangani's top producer of coconut.
