Supporters of the Marcos family are celebrating the 95th birthday of former President Ferdinand Marcos today, September 11.

Ilocanos kicked off the celebrations with the "Real Macoy Festival", which featured various contests and performances inspired by the late strongman and his wife, Imelda.

Marcos' remains are still in a mausoleum in Ilocos Norte as his family awaits for the government to give him a hero's burial.
