Gibraltar National Day 2017

September 10, 2017 in Gibraltar

Gibraltar National Day is celebrated on September 10, 2017. Gibraltar National Day is the official national day of the British overseas territory of Gibraltar. The day commemorates Gibraltar's first sovereignty referendum of 1967, in which Gibraltarian voters were asked whether they wished to either pass under Spanish sovereignty, or remain under British sovereignty, with institutions of self-government. The official Gibraltar National Day events begin with a children's fancy dress competition followed by a street party. Later a selected school choir sings songs with a Gibraltar theme. This is followed by the main event, the Mayor's recitation of the names of the recipients of the Gibraltar Medallion of Honour and the reading of the Gibraltar National Day Declaration. This is followed by the traditional release from atop the Parliament building of 30,000 red and white balloons, representing Gibraltar's population, which has featured on this day since 1992. A funday for children featuring bouncy castles and fairground rides is then held. There is live music is played all afternoon at Governor's Parade and the Rock on the Rock Club, all free of charge. The day culminates with a fireworks display released from the Detached Mole in the Gibraltar Harbour at night followed by a rock concert. (With material from: Wikipedia)
