The Araneta Center holds today a street concert in time for celebrating Philippine Independence.
Happening at Manhattan Row along Malvar Street, “Tugtugang Malaya” showcases Silent Sanctuary, Quest, and Shanti Dope.
There’s also an exhibit at Ali Mall’s activity area features several paintings by local artists. The set-up highlights Philippine history with replica images of some of Gateway Gallery’s “Sining Lakbay” Philippine history collection with Augmented Reality (AR) feature that triggers a video when you scan with the free app called Layar.
The Independence 120 event also highlights activities at the Farmers Plaza, including the Trabahong Pinoy job fair on June 12.
Also happening are free movie screenings in Gateway Gallery at the 5th level of Gateway Tower, featuring “Apolinario Mabini: Talino at Paninindigan” at 4 p.m., and “Ang Kababaihan ng Malolos” at 5 p.m. The gallery also holds free guided tours.
A 60-foot x 120-foot Philippine flag adorns Cyberpark 1, one of the tallest buildings in Araneta Center, facing EDSA. It is hoped that the giant flag would be a reminder to everyone that we are all Filipinos and the only way to progress is through unity.
