The Navotas City government announced on Saturday, Jan. 6, that it has organized a series of activities to celebrate the city’s 118th founding anniversary on Jan. 16.

Themed “Kapag Tulong-Tulong, Angat ALL, Saya ALL,” the festivities for Navotas Day will kick off with “Misa ng Pasasalamat and Pistang Kristyano” on Monday, Jan. 8, according to the city government.

A banchetto-style night market named “Kalye Fiesta” will be set up at the Navotas Citywalk and Ampitheater as part of the celebrations.

The “Araw ng Mangingisda (Fishermen’s Day)” is scheduled for Jan. 10 to honor the city’s fisherfolk, featuring boat racing and net mending competition, as well as the awarding of the Top 10 most outstanding fisherfolks in Navotas.

Given that Navotas is known as the “Fishing Capital of the Philippines,” with fishing playing a significant role in its residents’ livelihood, the city’s fisherfolk and their contributions will be at the forefront during the anniversary celebration.

Additionally, the Pangisdaan Festival street dance competition will feature performances by junior and senior students from six public high schools in the city, showcasing the rich history and culture of Navotas.

The city government also has several other activities lined up, including the recognition of the Top 20 taxpayers, a “Zumba and Health Caravan for Lolo and Lola,” Navotas Funbikers Get-Together Ride, Invitational Judo Tournament, “Pakita Mo Pet Mo! (Dog Edition),” Kaunlaran Super Health Center groundbreaking activity, financial literacy seminar, simultaneous clean-up activity, a grand parade, and a mega job fair.

The celebration will conclude with the distribution of rice packs to residents from Jan. 17-22.

“Another fruitful year of overcoming challenges has come and gone. Through this celebration, we express our gratefulness for the guidance and blessings that we received from the Almighty for the past years,” stated Navotas City Mayor John Reynald “John Rey” Tiangco.

He added, “The milestones we have achieved in our city are also made possible with the support and cooperation of Navoteños.”
