SPIDS 9th Annual Philippine Independence Day Celebration

Surrey Philippine Independence Day Society (SPIDS) will be holding its 9th Annual Philippine Independence Day Celebration on June 10th, Saturday, 10am-4pm at the Bridgeview Park Community Ctre at 11475-126 A Street Surrey. The Centre has plenty of free parking spaces and is easily accessible by public transportation via Bus #C71 from Guildford Bay Ctre and Surrey Central Station.

It is also a short walking distance (just across King George Blvd via pedestrian overpass) from Scott Road Skytrain Station. The event will showcase live band performances of the Jim’s Underground Band and a number of local celebrities including some surprise guests will also provide additional music and entertainment.

The highlight of the celebration will once again be its main feature – the beautiful and colorful Santacruzan (Parade of Queens). This year’s Reyna Emperatriz (Queen Empress) and Reyna Elena (Queen Helena) are young Filipino-Canadian beauty queens Anne Longakit and Erika Ballestra Teguibon, respectively.

There will be a number of other SPIDS Santacruzan ‘queens and princesses’ joining the parade, which will be held at mid- day. The program will be overseen by local entertainment host and performer, PapaBear and his lovely co-hosts, young singers Blessy Rivera & Glisha Dela Cruz and beauty queen, Shawna Warhurst. Booth display/exhibit, games, raffle draw, and food concessionaires will be available to public. ADMISSION IS FREE.
