President Bongbong Marcos has declared June 24 as a special non-working day in Manila to mark its 452nd founding anniversary.
The President signed Proclamation No. 261 on June 15.
“It is but fitting and proper that the people of the City of Manila be given full opportunity to participate in the occasion and enjoy the celebration,” the proclamation read.
