The 342nd Makati Day kicked off the first week of May, 2012 with a Flores de Mayo celebration. A parade of people bedecked in beautiful traditional Filipino costumes represented the city’s government offices, as well as commercial businesses, particularly the prominent 5 star luxury Makati hotels, including Hotel Intercontinental, Mandarin Oriental, Manila Peninsula, Makati Shangri-La and Dusit Thani Makati. The highly recognized real estate groups, SM and Rockwell Land Corp. were also there to celebrate this grand event.
Watch out for other activities lined up this May and June!

Take to the streets at annual Reposo Street Art Festival on May 19-20, 2012, located between Kalayaan Ave and Jupiter street, where visitors can marvel at visual eye candy, murals, arts and crafts books, performers, and a viewing of French films. Or let your hair loose on May 26, 2012 at the Makati Street Party. On the same weekend, come with your family and enjoy the carnival in the Makati Coliseum on May 26 or head to the Makati City Hall Quadrangle on May 27.
Those who are fresh out of college should take advantage of the week-long mini job fair at the Makati City Hall Quadrangle on May 28 to June 1, 2012.
Here’s something interesting for tourists and locals alike: A “Kasalang Bayan” on the 30th of May at the Makati City Hall Quadrangle, which is basically a free “mass wedding”. This will certainly be a big celebration of love and matrimony. To further illustrate the Filipino’s god-fearing attitude, a thanksgiving mass will culminate the whole Makati celebration on June 1, 2012 (also at the quadrangle).
Happy Makati Day/s!
