COMMUNITY: CKJS @ the Manitoba Filipino Street Festival

 

Hundreds  lined the streets in the Maples Neighborhood  Saturday for the seventh annual Manitoba Filipino Street Festival parade.

The parade featured dozens of floats, which included  our CKJS 810 Cruiser and organizations which paraded  down   Jefferson Avenue to Adsum Drive and gathered   at the Maples Community Centre which was the centre of the celebration.

CKJS Announcers Maui Zamora (and  co-pilot  son Ace)  paraded our  CKJS vehicle as  Lucille Nolasco and Donna Natividad-Arenas (with friends Antonette  and Joyce) waved  hellos as they walked down  the street on their cultural attire.

Chester Pangan  did  a remote broadcast at the Vickar Automotive  Group booth.

Run by the MFSF Board of Directors and volunteers chaired by  Ley Navarro, this is the first year that the festival expanded to being a two-day event, and also the first year of it being hosted in The Maples after two years of parading in downtown.

Festival’s centre stage  featured popular actor Richard Guttierez.

Variety of  food, entertainment,  street games, movie presentation, girls’ beauty search  and  other cultural attractions comprised  the event.
