Philippine-Spanish Friendship DayThe celebrations of the 108 Anniversary of the Siege of Baler aka the 5th Philippine-Spanish Friendship Day will commence tonight with a thanksgiving mass, welcome dinner and fireworks display at the Baler Fish Port, Brgy. Zabali, Baler, Aurora. The main celebration will be tomorrow starting with a wreath-laying ceremony at the Baler Church and a program in front of Museo De Baler. Guest of Honor and Keynote Speaker will be His Excellency Luis Arias, the Ambassador of Spain to the Philippines.

Best place to see the fireworks tonight would be at Sabang Beach. Let’s hope the weather will cooperate as it is raining here in Baler as I write this post.
