PNoy declares Feb. 26 a holiday in Zambo


ZAMBOANGA CITY: President Benigno Simeon Aquino 3rd has issued Proclamation 970 declaring February 26 as a special non-working holiday in this city. City Hall information officer Belen Sheila Covarrubias said Saturday that the declaration is to give the Zamboangueños the opportunity to celebrate the 78th Charter Day Anniversary dubbed as “Dia de la Ciudad de Zamboanga.” The Dia de la Ciudad de Zamboanga marks the day when the first set of city government officials headed by Mayor Nicasio Valderoza was installed into office in 1935. The city government has lined up several activities to commemorate the Charter Day Anniversary. The main highlight of the celebration is the grand civic-military parade from Mayor Ledesma Street to Paseo del Mar.
