October is my favorite month because for me, it means celebrations. It’s my birthday month and luckily, it’s my HOME’s anniversary too. I’ve been living in Quezon City for more almost 30 years. I have seen it developed and now that it marks 75 years of cityhood, I’m glad to be a part of the diamond jubilee celebration.
During the celebratory kick-off at Quezon Memorial Circle last October 1, we were refreshed about the history of QC and toured inside Manuel Luis Quezon’s Heritage Home.
This is the exact replica of Quezon’s house in New Manila, QC. It was transferred inside Quezon Memorial Circle and is open to the public every Tuesdays to Sundays from 9:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m.
After the tour, the officials announced that the diamond jubilee will be an unforgettable celebration.
Major festivities are scheduled to happen on October 10, Saturday. The Diamond Jubilee Mardi Gras will start by 4:00 p.m to 7:00 p.m. all the way from Amoranto Stadium up to Tomas Morato area. Expect to see 5 of the country’s best festivities.
Shortly after the Mardi Gras, the Grand Parade of Lights will start by 7:00 p.m. to 11:00 p.m. at the Tomas Morato area. What to expect this time? The 10 LED-illuminated floats featuring the city landmarks!
But wait there’s more…
On October 11, Sunday, from 7:00 p.m. to 11:00 p.m. will mark the 2nd day of the Quezon City Grand Parade of Lights that will officially end at the Quezon Memorial Circle.
A GRAND CONCERT entitled QCROCKS@75 is also happening in QMC from 7:00 p.m. until midnight, featuring Parokya ni Edgar, Rocksteady and other bands.
Oh, I can’t wait for next week line-up of activities festivities and happy moments with friends and families! Come and join the grand celebration in Quezon City…it’s the place to be!
