Parada ng Kagitingan Bataan

I've always wanted to experience celebrating "Araw ng Kagitingan" in Bataan as it is known for it's significant role in Philippines History. That is why, I am so happy and excited to be back in Bataan last week, when I was invited by Bataan's Provincial Tourism Office to join them as they celebrate the "74th Araw ng Kagitingan."
