Araneta City joins the commemoration of the National Heroes Day on August 30, 2021 by saluting the bravery and heroism of Filipinos at the City of Firsts.
A series of on-ground and online events are slated to give salutation to our country’s heroes.
The commemoration at the City of Firsts will start on August 27 with the launch of the #LivingHeroes virtual exhibit in partnership with the J. Amado Araneta Foundation (JAAF). The exhibit will feature exemplary and inspiring stories of modern-day Pinoy heroes who made an impact during the pandemic.
The virtual exhibit will also be open as a photo exhibit at the Gateway Mall Activity Area on August 28.
The online community must also watch out for the announcement of the #AranetaNewHeroes costume contest via Araneta City’s Tiktok account, which will put to test the creativity of netizens and their familiarity on Filipino heroes.
