Thousands of people gathered along Memorial Avenue last Saturday, August 20th, 2016 to celebrate the Winnipeg Filipino Street Festival.
The festival kicked off with a parade in the morning showing colorful decorated floats and street cultural performances.
This year was the first time the event was held in the downtown area. Various Filipino community associations and groups set up tents along Broadway and Memorial Boulevard.
Now on its fifth year, the festival is a showcase of the rich culture of the Philippines and brought out a strong sense of pride and solidarity in the big Filipino community. It provided full day entertainment featuring local talents with guest Philippines stars Xian Lim and Tootsie Guevarra.
