Macharaviaya held an event to honour Bernardo de Galvez, an 18th century military leader born in the town, on the 225th anniversary of his death on Sunday.

His most important military victory occurred May 9, 1781, when he attacked and took by land and by sea Pensacola, the British capital of West Florida. The events included a market and guided tours.
