Negros Occidental honors heroes

Bacolod City (6 November) -- November 5 is a public holiday throughout Negros Occidental as the province marks the 110th Cinco de Noviembre anniversary of its liberation from Spain.

Negros Occidental Gov. Isidro Zayco said the celebration will honor the heroes who fought for Negros' freedom.

The celebration was highlighted by a cultural show that was dedicated to the families and descendants of the Negrense heroes of the historic and triumphant uprising on Nov.5, 1898.

They were honored by the provincial officials led by Neg. Occ. Gov. Isidro Zayco at the Provincial Park.

Bago City also marked the day with the parade of cannons along its city streets in honor of Gen. Juan Araneta and his men who bluffed the Spaniards with their fake armaments that led to their surrender on Nov. 6, 1989.

The display of cannons is dubbed as the 'Sigabong sang mga kanyon' participated in by the 24 barangays of Bago City competing for the loudest boom and the best reenactment of the first bloddless coup in the Philippines. (PIA/cad) [top]
