CEBU CITY – Lapu-Lapu City Mayor Junard Ahong Chan has confirmed that President Rodrigo Duterte will attend the 500th anniversary of the Victory in Mactan on April 27 this year.
The highlight of the said activity was the reenactment of the Battle of Mactan where Datu Lapu-Lapu defeated the Spaniards under the leadership of Ferdinand Magellan.
Attendance will be limited to 50 to 100 to ensure social distancing and for the security of the president amid the coronavirus pandemic.
Because of this, the mayor urged the Oponganons to just stay at home that day because it can be watched via online.
Some activities include gala and cultural shows, fireworks display, and drone display.
The start of the reenactment depends on the arrival of the president and at what time the sea level rises.
Apart from the president, Senators “Bong Go,” Sonny Angara, and Imee Marcos will attend.
The event will be held at the Liberty Shrine in Barangay Mactan of the city.
