4th Manitoba Filipino Street Festival

According to 2011 Canadian census there are around 61,270 Filipinos in Manitoba, in fact, the Filipino community is the largest visible minority group in Winnipeg.  We Filipinos are also known for our festivities, here in Winnipeg, the members of the Filipino communities shared the fun of having a community celebration with Canadians and other nations through the Manitoba Filipino Street Festival.  Now on its 4th year, the Manitoba Street Festival celebrates Filipino community. Just like any other Filipino festivities, this event showcases the rich culture and traditions of the Filipinos,  participating Filipino organizations join the parade while showing best music, best dance, best costumes and even best Filipino food.

Each year the parade, is held in August with a parade along McPhillips Street from Northgate Shopping Centre to Garden City Shopping Centre.  Being one of the sponsors of the event, The Filipino Channel (TFC) sent one of Philippines movie and television heartthrob, Jericho Rosales to grace the 2015 event.

I would like to share with you some of the pictures during the festival on Saturday (August 22, 2015), taken by Von Cruz.

Momsiecle is short for Momsie's Circle. I started my first blog on a free blogging platform in 2006 as a just for fun blog. When my family and I moved to Winnipeg in 2009, I started to write about my challenges and discoveries about living in Canada as an immigrant. In 2012, I decided to make momsiecle.com a place to come for aspiring Canadian immigrants and for people who are embracing life in the “new world” that they are in.
