UPDATED, June 26: Pasig City will be celebrating its 442nd foundation anniversary next week, July 2.

The day, which this year falls on Thursday, has declared a special non-working holiday by President Benigno Aquino III through Proclamation 1061. Below is the proclamation, taken from Mayor Maribel Eusebio’s Facebook page:

Even before the declaration was made, the mayor already announced through social media the list of activities for July 2:

1) Pasig City Mega-wide Sale or “Diskuwento Pasigueno” –

In partnership with various barangays and establishments

2) Thanksgiving Mass (6:30 AM) – Santa Clara de Montefalco Church

3) Grand Parade (7:00 AM) – C. Raymundo Avenue in front of Santa Clara de Montefalco Church

4) Parade of Barangay Fiesta Festival (7:00 AM)

– C. Raymundo Avenue in front of Santa Clara de Montefalco Church

5) Libreng Sakay sa Araw ng Pasig (5:00 AM to 5:00 PM) –  Market to San Joaquin to Marikina

July 2 is momentous in Pasig City history because it was on this date back in 1573 that the territory was first declared as a Visitacion Parish. The city’s official website claims that this is the first Marian parish in the country and perhaps even in the entire Asia.

Even if Pasig City is now regarded as one of the country’s premiere commercial center because of the Ortigas business district, it only became a city in 1994 through Republic Act 7829.
