BALANGA CITY, Bataan – The Province of Bataan led by Governor Albert Raymond S. Garcia will celebrate its 262nd founding anniversary on January 9-11, 2019.
The annual celebration before it became a law, started with a House Bill (HB 3718) jointly filed by Bataan representatives, Geraldine B. Roman (Bataan 1st District) and Jose Enrique S. Garcia III (Bataan 2nd District) seeking to declare January 11 of every year as Bataan Foundation Day, making it as a special non-working public holiday in the entire province.
It was enacted into law last November 8, 2018 when President Rodrigo Duterte signed the Republic Act 11138 or “An Act Declaring January 11 of Every Year a Special Non-Working Holiday in the Province of Bataan in Commemoration of Its Founding Anniversary to be Known as ‘Bataan Foundation Day.’”
Bataan Tourism Department thru their Facebook Page invites everyone to take part in a three-day celebration filled with various activities like the Choral and Folk Dance competition to be participated by different schools of the province on January 9 at the Bataan People’s Center.
