Rizal Day

RIZAL DAY CELEBRATION. The Philippines annually celebrates the death anniversary of the national hero, Jose Rizal, with wreath-laying ceremonies in various parks and monuments throughout the country to remember Rizal’s great love for country that eventually led to his martyrdom at Luneta, Manila on December 30, 1896. Here in Vigan City, Ilocos Sur, members of the Philippine National Police stand at attention infront of the Rizal monument at the Plaza Salcedo during the wreath laying ceremony held last December 30, 2018.
