July 22 is Bohol holiday to celebrate 154th Bohol Day

by Rey Anthony Chiu

Tagbilaran City (19 July) -- BOHOLANOS pause from work on Tuesday, July 22 as the entire province celebrates 154th Bohol Day.

Tuesday has been declared a non-working special public holiday for Bohol by virtue of Republic Act 7683, enacted by the Senate and the House of Representatives February 23, 1994.

The day is actually 154 years after Bohol was officially separated along with Siquijor from Cebu.

The Spaniards also recognized Bohol as a separate politico-military province, a tradition that was carried on by the American regime until present time.

To commemorate the day, Capitol, through Acting Governor Julius Caesar Herrera bared that the activities lined up for the day include a formal commemorative program with Philippine Vice President Noli de Castro as guest of honor and speaker.

The day starts with a flag raising ceremony at Plaza Rizal, followed by the unveiling of the marker for Capitol's Water Treatment Facility nearby.

Activity shifts to the Bohol Cultural Center at 8:30 for a holy mass followed by the event's commemorative program.

Herrera also said that the commemorative program includes the conferment of Datu Sikatuna Awards for outstanding individuals and institutions.

From there, at 1:00 pm, another activity: the Bull Ride Fun unleashes at the Tagbilaran City Government Compound where a Cultural show is also slated at 8:00 in the evening. (PIA) [top]
