75th Year of ARAW NG KAGITINGAN Celebration 2017 in Bataan : Schedule of Activities




In it's 75th year, Bataan will again celebrate  one of  its grandest event which is the ARAW NG KAGITINGAN with the theme: "Parangal sa mga Beterano, Tungo sa Bayan na Nararapat sa mga Pilipino, mga Pilipino na Nararapat sa Bayan" 


The Day of Valor ( April 9, 1942) or the Araw Ng Kagitingan that is celebrated every 9th of April is an annual celebration of the Fall of Bataan and the bravery shown by the Filipino and American soldiers before they surrendered to the Japenese during the World War II. 

As part of the celebration, the Province of Bataan will hold different events for 8 days to commemorate the bravery of our Filipino soldiers during World Ward 2. 

This year, here is the schedule of events, time, and the venue where activities will take place. Schedule might still change, but I will make updates as soon as I have received them.
