MANILA, Philippines--The Manila city government announced Saturday that Araw ng Maynila on June 24 is a non-working holiday in the city.

According to Mayor Alfredo Lim, Malacañang issued Proclamation No. 1799 declaring Wednesday, June 24, as a special (non-working) day in Manila in commemoration of the 438th founding anniversary of the city.

The city government has prepared several activities in line with the celebration, which carries the theme "Patungo sa Maunlad na Kinabukasan."

A testimonial dinner and cocktails will be held Sunday night to honor this year's outstanding Manilans at the Manila Hotel.

June 22 will commence with the usual Monday flag-raising ceremony in the morning, to be followed by awarding of the outstanding employees. At 11 a.m., an awarding ceremony for the cleanest barangay will be held at the City Hall's Bulwagang Villegas.

On Tuesday, June 23, the city will honor renowned Filipino artists in a ceremony dubbed as Patnubay ng Sining at Kalinangan 2009, an event started by the late Mayor Antonio Villegas in 1963.

Manila Day, June 24, will be celebrated with free entrance to the Manila Zoo from 6 a.m. onwards; a thanksgiving Mass at the Kartilya Side of Bonifacio Shrine; medical missions in the city's six districts; wreath-laying ceremonies at Bonifacio Shrine, Rajah Sulayman Monument, and at the tomb of Miguel Lopez de Legazpi at the San Agustin Church.

The awarding ceremony for "Lakas ng Iisang Maynila" Summer Sports League 2009 organized by Manila Sports Council will also be held on the same day.
