#WALANGPASOK: January 10 is special non-working day in Koronadal

January 10, Friday, is a special non-working day in City of Koronadal as declared by Malacañang.

Through Proclamation No. 871 signed by Executive Secretary Salvador C. Medialdea last December 26,  2019 President Rodrigo Duterte declared Jan. 10 a special non-working day in the city to give the people the opportunity to celebrate the 20th Hinugyaw Festival and the 80th Foundation Day of Koronadal, which is celebrated every year to pay homage to the city's first settlers.

Before World War II, people from Luzon and the Visayas settled in the place under the auspices of the National Land Settlement Administration (NLSA).

Once populated by members of the Blaan and Maguindanao tribes, Koronadal City, also known as Marbel, is now the capital of the Province of South Cotabato and the regional center of Region 12 or SOCCSKSARGEN.

With the theme, "One People. One Big Dream. One Koronadal", the week-long Hinugyaw Festival 2020 celebration started last January 3.
