The Tawo-Tawo Festival is celebrated annually every month of December in Negros Oriental. Street dancing and showdown competitions are held the day before the fiesta, which is joined by hundreds of visitors both local and foreign. They celebrate the scarecrows (tawo-tawo) through paper mache higantes and guardians of the town's crops. (Photography by Charlie Sindiong).
