MANILA, Philippines?Starting Wednesday, the City of Makati will mark its 339th Foundation Day with a month-long series of activities to include parades, concerts, contests, a job fair, and a mass wedding.

Makati Mayor Jejomar Binay said that although the city?s foundation day is on June 1, the celebration will kick off on May 6 with ?Kapitbayan Night? or a welcome dinner for delegates from the city?s sister-cities.

The next day, the delegates will meet with city government officials to share their best practices in governance, followed by a tour of Makati.

At around 4 p.m. on the same day, a Flores de Mayo procession will be held from Rockwell Center to Ayala Center followed at 7 p.m. by a performance of traditional Filipino love songs during the ?Aawitan Kita? concert at the University of Makati.

Shoppers, on the other hand, will be treated to a grand anniversary sale at Glorietta from May 7 to 9.

On May 8, elaborate-designed floats and participants dressed in costumes will join the annual grand parade on Ayala Avenue with ?Celebrate Progress and Service to the People? as the theme. Delegates from Makati?s sister-cities and municipalities will also be joining the parade.

?Once again, it is our honor to host our sister-cities and municipalities on our Foundation Day. We are fortunate to have them again this year and we look forward to sharing expertise and best practices with them,? Binay said.

Barangay (Village) Bel-Air?s ?Pasinaya 2009,? or the celebration of the barangay?s own feast day, will also kick off on May 8 and run until the 10th, where a chalk art exhibition will be held on Ayala Avenue at 7 a.m. This will be followed by a brass band competition at Ayala corner Paseo de Roxas at 3 p.m.

The city government will host a Mega Job Fair on May 15 at the City Hall Quadrangle while a ?Family Day? filled with games and surprises will be held on May 17 at the same venue.
