Makati Day 2014

Makati City will be marking its 344th foundation day anniversary this June 1, Sunday. Despite the occasion, the day is not expected to be declared a special non-working holiday. For example, the school calendar of University of Makati, a government-run institution, proves this fact.

Nevertheless, the local government under the leadership of Mayor Junjun Binay has already scheduled a list of activities to celebrate the said event. According to the city government’s official website, there will be a grand parade titled “Cultural Presentation of the Makateños” on May 27. 

The competition will feature students from the city’s public high schools including San Isidro High School (performing Ati-Atihan Festival), Pio del Pilar High School (Dinagyang Festival), Pitogo High School (Kadayawan Festival), Fort Bonifacio High School (Sinulog Festival), and San Antonio High School (Maskara Festival).
