A Rainy Start

August 11, 2012 started out as a rainy day but it did not deter the Filipino-Canadian community from coming out to celebrate Filipino culture, heritage and and its people at the Celebration Square in Mississauga for the Fiesta ng Kalayaan.

It was a free day-long event which featured fashion, dance, songs and entertainment from a variety of performers in the community.

A highlight of the event was the appearance of Piolo Pascual, one of the most sought after actors/performers in the Philippines who was brought in from the Philippines by ABS-CBN and energized and revved up the crowd.
