Eat, sing, dance, and hear stories for Filipino American History Month
Start your day on October 14, Saturday at 12 noon by visiting the Filipino Young Professionals (FYP) Filipino Street Festival at Levy Park. Visit the Filipino Food and T-shirt booth and buy some Filipino BBQ or a chicken lollipop. You can pick up a limited printed edition t-shirt with artwork created by Kristian Kabuay, pre Filipino script, Baybayin artist. The T-shirt will adorn the word “KAPWA”. Kapwa is the core concept in Filipino personhood. Kapwa means how we are equal, and connected to our fellow human beings. Click here to read more.
