In the mood for a pagdiriwang?

A local Filipino group is partnering with Richmond Public Library, the Gateway Theatre, and the Philippine Consulate General to host a Philippine Cultural Celebration in Richmond on Saturday Dec. 1st from 11 a.m. – 2 p.m. at the Brighouse (main) Branch of the Richmond Public Library (7700 Minoru Gate).

The Philippine Consul General Jose A.P. Ampeso and other local VIPs will be present to mark this free, drop-in, cultural event .

The celebration’s theme is “Heroes of Culture (Within and Among Us)”. The event coincides with Andres Bonifacio Day, a Philippine holiday. It honours the ascent and engagement of the Filipino Community within Canada’s multicultural mosaic.  The Philippine Consul General will also be making a donation presentation of Filipino DVDs to the library.
