114th Independence Day at Luneta Park

The whole country celebrated the 114th anniversary of the proclamation of the Philippine Independence last Tuesday (June 12). There were celebrations in the various historical sites around the country. The government hosted celebrations at the Aguinaldo Shrine and Barasoain Church. I went to the Independence Day celebration at Luneta Park.

It is a day of gusty wind with a threat of heavy rain but many people showed up for the Independence Day celebration. Majority of the people who showed up are job seekers who took their chances in the job fair located near Luneta Park's dancing fountain. Other people were attracted by the booths erected by different government agencies. The booth that became the crowd's favorite is the booth from the military because they featured their big guns.

My favorite is this anti-aircraft gun:

I also like this howitzer:

I want to own the anti-aircraft gun and howitzer and display them in front of my house. Then I will buy a tank, which I can drive when I go to work. I bet that even the overspeeding bus drivers will have second thoughts before challenging me in my army tank. He he he.

The Philippine flag took the “center stage” since it is Independence Day. Luneta Park had numerous Philippine flags waving proudly in the wind.

Of course, I didn't forget to take a photo of the most important monument in Luneta Park, which is the monument of Jose Rizal.

    Salamat sa pagbisita sa aking blog.


    Yes. There are people who do not love their homeland and their fellowmen.


    Yup. Pasiklab ng AFP. Pero kapag nakita ito ng mga nasa Chinese government sasabihin nila small guns lang ang mga 'yun.
