Here’s what you’ve missed: lively music, cultural performances, good food, games, car and bike shows, genuine smiles, and the Philippines’ R&B Prince, Jay-R!
The first ever Filipino summer festival called Niagara Fiesta Extravaganza was held last July 30 in the Niagara Region. This event was attended by hundreds of Filipino-Canadians in Niagara and other nearby cities as well. Many organizations from Toronto, Scarborough, also attended the event to show their support to the growing Filipino-Canadian community in the area.
The Niagara Fiesta Extravaganza was a great avenue to promote multicultural awareness and appreciation of the Filipino heritage. “As community builders, this celebration is also a way to build a stronger Filipino community in Canada,” said Mr. Von Canton, founder/CEO of the Canada Fiesta Extravaganza.
The joyous Filipino fiesta experience was served by the hard-working organizers. Adding to the excitement are the nonstop entertainment, Filipino foods, and iWantTFC Sama Saya celebrity guest “Prince of R&B” Jay-R!
Aside from the sing and dance performances, games, interactive booths, and band shows, an awarding ceremony and oath taking for those with dual citizenship also took place.
Because of the huge success of this event, the overwhelmed organizers plan to continue this event next year and double the fun by holding the celebration for two days.
