2015 INDEPEDENCE DAY CELEBRATIONS

Come celebrate with ALL another year of preserving and remembering the traditions and culture of the Filipinos in North Texas through the celebration of independence day of the Philippines!

On June 6, 2015, from 10:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m., the “Pista Sa Nayon” or Filipino Festival, another annual major event celebrated by Filipinos who lived in North Texas, will again be at Traders Village, 2602 Mayfield Road, in Grand Prairie. Traders Village, one of the largest flea markets in the United States, offered a huge pavilion called then Green Dome, for the comfort of the festival goers.

The event will start with the parade of banners, followed by the program showcasing Filipino and other multi-ethnic cultural presentations, choirs, bands, pageant and songs. Vendors will sell exquisite paraphernalia and delicacies. There will be games for adults and children, elbow rubbing among families and friends. The Santacruzan, a beauty pageant procession honoring the Blessed Virgin Mary, winds up the activity. Around 20,000 visitors are expected on this year’s festival. Impelled by the need to strengthen the bond of solidarity among them, majority of the different Filipino American organizations, churches, business establishments join forces to celebrate their precious independence won by their forefathers from Spain on June 12,1898,110 years ago.

PRDC aims to reach the 40,000 Filipino-Americans residing in the DFW Metroplex, who make significant contributions to the local economy as doctors, nurses, engineers, teachers, other business and professions. Please forward to your email lists. Thank you.

Sincerely yours,
Eveng Cava- President, PRDC
