Surrey, BC – A free family friendly celebration of Filipino culture is coming to Museum of Surrey on Saturday, Sept. 21 from 1-4 p.m., offering a day filled with Filipino dancing and music, special performances and tasty Filipino cuisine. The event is in partnership with the Surrey Public Libraries and Surrey Options Community Services.
Filipino Celebration, an event in partnership with the Surrey Public Libraries and Surrey Options Community Services, will also include a unique opportunity to learn tinikling (a traditional Philippine folk dance), bring the kids for a Tagalog and English storytelling session, make a craft and take in a Slam Poetry performance from the Filipinx community.
For those who work up an appetite from all the dancing and festivities, there is free lumpia (a savoury snack made of thin crepe pastry skin) while supplies last and food available for purchase from Shameless Buns, Grandt Kitchen and Potato Corner.
Free vaccinations will also be conducted onsite by Pharmasave DTS in partnership with Fraser Health. The vaccinations offered are MMR (Measles, Mumps and Rubella), TD (Tetanus Diphtheria) and Pneumovax (PPSV-23) for pneumococcal infection prevention. A Care Card is required.
