This month would have been quite busy for our entire community.
It’s the 2nd annual national celebration of Filipino culture in Canada. Due to COVID19, many events and festivals within the Filipino community have been postponed and cancelled.
As we can continue to get together in small groups, while practising social distancing, we are going to miss the events, especially the following:
* The Manitoba Filipino Street Festival is the largest Filipino community gathering in the province – parades, floats, food vendors, entertainment, and so much more.
* The Filipino Journal also hosts performers and artists on the Red River Ex community stage.
* The inaugural two-day Kultivation Festival was supposed to take place this month in the Exchange District.
* plus many more community association events!
How are you planning on celebrating Filipino Heritage Month with your friend, family and community during COVID19? Share your plans with us by email or on our social media channels to be featured in our next issue.
