Our city is celebrating yet another Fiesta Republica this year and here is the list of festivities and activities happening all-month long in Malolos. This is in line with the commemoration of the very first Republic formed in Malolos through the Malolos Congress 115 years ago. The series of activities was spearheaded by the inauguration of Cine Republica in Robinson’s Place Malolos on 16 January and the celebration will continue on in February through the Republica Cup slated in 01-16 February at the Malolos Sports and Convention Center. Other activities worthy of mention include the very 1st Malolos City Bike Festival in 25 January, as well as the 115th Araw ng Republikang Filipino 1899 happening on 23 January at Barasoain grounds.
Hopefully we’d be able to participate in one of the activities. I remember watching the brass band competition last year as my brother was part of the band who represented Bulacan in the program and it was well worth it staying till the program ended as their band won the grand prize.
