Celebrating Philippines Independence Day!

This was a "must-attend" Filipino event of the year, where Vancouver celebrated the 112th Philippines Independence Day with a large gathering at the Waterfront Park in North Vancouver. It was an opportunity for Filipinos to share and promote our culture, food, heritage, and traditions among our fellow Canadians.

Throughout the day, there was an estimated attendance of over 3,000 families and friends who enjoyed delicious Filipino and international cuisine, multicultural performances, fantastic raffle prizes, games and a morning parade!

Candice's Cusina joined in with the festivities and interviewed a local chef, Tony, from Fiesta Filipino Restaurant about their empanadas and enjoyed every bite of it! Now you can make these delicious, crispy empandas at home by trying out my empanada recipe, below. "Masarap!" (tastes good!)
