The Cordovanhons’s way of celebrating their past is expressed through a dance-drama known as the Dinagat-Bakasi Festival. The festival depicts Cordova’s fishing lifestyle with the town's fishermen and their wives dancing in thanksgiving for the bounty of the sea. Using nets, bancas and fishing implements for props, they also dance in the streets to honor their patron saint, San Roque.
