In celebration of the founding anniversary of the municipality of Victoria, Oriental Mindoro, and the marking of 18th anniversary as a city and celebrating the Talakudong Festival 2018 in the city of Tacurong, Sultan Kudarat, September 18, (Tuesday) 2018 is declared as a special nonworking.

The municipality of Victoria is classified as a semi-urban, 2nd class municipality. It was also named after the daughter of President Elpidio Quirino.

Talakudong festival pertains to a “festival of hats”. It is derived from the word kudong, which means a head covering as a protection from the heat of the sun and rain. Early people gave a golden kudong as a gift to the sultan of Buluan (now Buluan town, Maguindanao). RQJ
