MANILA - June 24 is a special non-working holiday in the city of Manila, the Palace said Monday.

Executive Secretary Jojo Ochoa, on behalf of President Benigno Aquino, issued the declaration in Proclamation No. 64, which recognizes the capital city's 442nd Foundation Day.

"It is but fitting and proper that the people of the City of Manila be given full opportunity to celebrate and participate in the occasion with appropriate ceremonies," the proclamation said.
