Think about Manitoba’s rich multiculturalism and the Francophone and Aboriginal communities probably come to mind. But did you know that Winnipeg is home to Canada’s second-largest Filipino community, and that the Filipino language, Tagalog, is the second-most common mother tongue in Winnipeg?
This weekend offers a fun opportunity to learn more about the Filipino culture and community at the 2014 Filipino Street Festival. It will be held on Saturday, August 23rd at the Garden City shopping centre at McPhillips and Leila. The party runs 9am to 9pm and admission is free!
The festival will include a parade, beauty pageant, musical performances, street dancing, martial arts displays, and more.
