Tan Holdings participated in the 72nd Liberation Day celebration held last July 4. Liberation Day commemmorates the emancipation of island residents from the confines of Camp Susupe and the repatriation of Japanese, Korean and Okinawan citizens following World War II.
This year’s Tan Holdings float features several flowers such as ginger blossons and birds of paradise, as well as trees including coconut and banana, signifying the abundance of tropical flora in the Marianas. The float also follows the theme “Celebrating Cultures, Community and Service” with riders wearing traditional attire or military uniform, and with photo collages of those who contributed exceptional service to the community. The CNMI’s values such as strength and resilience were symbolized by the bamboo used as its base and frame.
