January 13, Mardi Gras Day and Special (Non-Working) Holiday in San Pablo City

It’s a holiday today in San Pablo City, Laguna!

No talks about Friday the 13th being an unlucky day can hinder San Pableños to celebrate the Coconut Festival and the famed Mardi Gras (pronounced as maa-di’graa) Street Dancing Competition. And to make things enjoyable, a proclamation from Malacañang [Proclamation No. 312] has been issued declaring January 13 as a special (non-working) day in the city. This is good so that more people would be able to see the parade of dancers and floats along Rizal Avenue.
