CA Civic Center hosts Fil-Am Cultural Celebration

with one comment

The Filipino-American community’s annual cultural celebration last Saturday was held at the Oceanside’s Civic Center Plaza at the North County in Escondido, CA. The delicious aromas of traditional Filipino foods wafted through the plaza amidst the fashion show of traditional clothing worn in the many different regions of the Philippines, followed by beauty pageants, scholarship awards and ending with a colorful display of folk dances. Food included pancit (a stir-fried noodle and vegetable dish), lumpia (vegetable or ground beef eggrolls), and adobo (chicken or pork braised in soy sauce, vinegar, onion and garlic). Rica Derosier, president of the Fil-Am Cultural Association of North San Diego, explained that the goal of the annual celebration is to promote better relations between the United States and the Philippines, preserve and promote the Filipino heritage and to provide a mechanism for its introduction into the American culture.

  1. I would like to know how to reach Filipino’s living in the U.S. for specialized communication services I offer. Can you assist me? Low cost calling from the various international sites.

    I know this is not the platform to ask, but I did not know where else to go.

    Thank you.
