All levels in private and public schools were declared suspended for the celebration, according to the city’s advisory.

At the onset of World War II, Japanese Imperial Forces occupied Mandaluyong and in 1945, American Liberation Forces helped liberate the municipality.

In 1994, President Fidel V. Ramos signed Republic Act No. 7675 which marked the conversion of Mandaluyong from municipality to a highly urbanized city.
