HAWAII’S ANNUAL FILIPINO FIESTA TO BE HELD VIRTUALLY ON NOVEMBER 14
HONOLULU – The Filipino Community (FilCom) Center will be hosting the 27th Annual Filipino Fiesta and 7th Flores De Mayo on Saturday, November 14 from 10:00 a.m. to 11:00 a.m. as a virtual event due to the current COVID-19 pandemic. Event attendance will be free and open to the public, with details and updates via the center’s website at FilCom.org.
The typically day-long live event will be shortened to a 60-minute program that will feature Hawaii’s Filipino community showcasing its traditions, direct from the Filipino Community (FilCom) Center in Waipahu. Special guests, entertainment, and a Pasko (Christmas) presentation will be featured in the program to provide attendees a unique glimpse into the beauty of the Philippines and its culture.
Despite the event’s postponement from its original date in May, many community businesses and organizations have stepped up to help the FilCom Center continue its yearly tradition of providing Hawaii’s go-to celebration of everything Filipino. “FilCom continues to work with various organizations to assist the community during this unique and difficult period of time that the entire State of Hawaii is experiencing. We hope you will join us in FilCom’s first ever virtual event where we celebrate our great heritage,” adds Donnie Juan, Executive Director of the FilCom Center.
