The Winnipeg Goldeyes hosted Filipino Night at Canwest Ballpark on July 10 to highlight the Filipino culture and community as they played the Joliet Jack Hammers on a cool and cloudy summer evening.
Goldeye fans were treated to wonderful voice of Beverley Wynne as she sang the Canadian national anthem.
Live cultural entertainment took place on the baseball diamond with the Kayumanggi Performing Arts as they performed the traditional tinikling. While the fans in the grandstand were treated to fine Filipno cusine provided by Pampanga Restaurant. Clarita Nazario was also on hand selling Filipino themed t-shirts and cultural souvenirs.
Coincidentaly, in an unrelated event at Hu’s Asian Bistro ballpark patio was the Joaquin Anniversary Party. Congratulations to the Joaquin family!
In the end, the Goldeyes couldn’t close out a win an exciting ninth inning and lost 4-3 to the Joliet Jackhammers.
