Darna, the fictional Filipino comics superhero came to life at the 2014 Manitoba Filipino Street Festival. The Filipino Journal along with MXYZ Images & Events helped conceptualize and build the DARNA concept for the Street Festival. We had 10 girls dress up as Darna with the help of their parents and grandparents in making the Darna costumes.
