First, the province celebrates its 94th foundation anniversary. Historical records indicate that the province was created by the American Civil Government on April 15, 1920.

The contributions of homegrown heroes such as Wenceslao Vinzons, Gen. Vicente Lukban, Jose Ma. Panganiban, Francisco “Turko” Boayes and Tomas Zaldua will also be remembered.

Various activities have been prepared by the provincial government of Camarines Norte to mark this year's celebration.

Among these the Ultra Marathon Challenge, fireworks display, surfing and kayak surfing clinic, football clinic, the Search for Environmental Princess, Binibining Camarines Norte pageant, a shooting competition, a variety show, and a fun run.
