Tagultol Festival is an evolution of various cultural activities, practiced in previous years by Atimonanins.
The Town & Patronal Fiesta every August 1 & 2 is simply celebrated with the usual parade, a cultural program, thanksgiving mass and procession.
In 1981, during the administration of the late Quezon Board Member & former Mayor of Atimonan REMEDIOS V. DIESTRO, an activity was started the KARAKOL. It is a fluvial parade done in the afternoon of the 2nd day of the fiesta. The boats traveled around Lamon Bay within the boundaries of the town proper headed by the Grand Boat where the patron - Nuestra Senora de Los Angeles was aboard. There were singing, dancing & band playing, all in expression of gratitude to the Almighty for the years bountiful catch. The parade then joined the religious procession and ended at the church.
