Paranaque City will be celebrating its 17th cityhood anniversary this February 13, Friday.

The day has been declared a special non-working holiday in Paranaque City courtesy of President Benigno Aquino III’s Proclamation 955. Read the full text of Proclamation 955 in this link.

The holiday effectively gives those working and  studying in the said Metro Manila city a three-day weekend.

Divided into 16 barangays and two legislative districts, the erstwhile municipality of Paranaque was converted into a highly-urbanized city in February 1998 when then-President Fidel Ramos signed into law Republic Act 8507, which is also known as the Charter of the City of Paranaque.

As noted in a previous post, the enactment of RA 8507 made Paranaque the 11th component city of the National Capital Region.
