Duterte declares holidays in Angeles City on Oct. 15 and 26
President Rodrigo Duterte declared Oct. 15 and 26, 2018 as special non-working days in Angeles City, Pampanga.
Duterte issued Proclamation No. 589 on Sept. 13, through Executive Secretary Salvador Medialdea, declaring said holidays as Angeles City celebrates Fiestang Kuliat and Tigtigan Terakan Keng Dalan.
According to the proclamation, Angeles City will mark the opening of the Kuliat Festival and the Tigtigan Terakan Keng Dalan, a festival which symbolizes the resilience of the people during the Mt. Pinatubo eruption, on Oct. 15 and 26, respectively.
“It is but fitting and proper that the people of the City of Angeles be given full opportunity to celebrate and participate in these occasions with appropriate ceremonies,” the proclamation states.
Fiestang Kuliat is observed every October since the 1990s when it was first held, encompassing the feast day celebrations of the city’s patron saints – the Blessed Virgin of the Holy Rosary, the Lord of the Holy Sepulcher, and the Holy Guardian Angels.
Tigtigan Terakan Keng Dalan, conceived to uplift the spirits of the Angelenos after the devastation caused by the Mt. Pinatubo eruption in 1991, is among the highlights of the Kuliat Festival and is the city’s version of the Mardi Gras or Oktoberbest.
