SOME 10,000 individuals are expected to celebrate with the Hugpong ng Pagbabago's (HNP) thanksgiving activity Friday, May 31.
The activity, called as "Daghang Salamat, Davao City," will be a luncheon and dinner activity at the Rizal Park, San Pedro Street.
The thanksgiving party will be celebrated, weeks after candidates endorsed by the HNP, a regional party of Davao City Mayor Sara Duterte-Carpio, snagged nine out of 12 Senate seats during the 2019 midterm elections.
In Davao City, all of HNP's endorsed candidates were voted in the Magic 12.
A temporary closure to vehicular traffic will be implemented nearby the venue's vicinity from 12:01 a.m. Friday (May 31) until 6 a.m. Saturday (June 1).
These are: the portion of Bolton Street in between Rizal Park and City Council Building, from corner San Pedro Street to corner Magallanes Street; City Hall Drive right side, from between Quezon and Rizal parks up to the City Engineer's Office and City Planning and Development Office; and the road fronting City Hall.
The celebration also coincides with Duterte-Carpio's 41st birthday.
The mayor previously thanked everyone who supported her and her party during the campaign period.
She also thanked the Dabawenyos for delivering a "12-0 vote" for HNP senators, saying it is a first in the city's history.
"Daghang Salamat sa inyong tanan. (Thank you everyone.) I have said that I feel alone everyday stressing over making sure Davao City is OK, but when I am in distress, Dabawenyos carry me on their backs," she said on her previous Instagram post.
No details have yet been disclosed if Duterte-Carpio and her partymates will be present during the activity.
