“I have seen first hand how this community event was well coordinated by this group, and how it created a generally positive impact not only to the Filipino community, but all the attendees to the celebration.” Councillor Bell opined.
Councillor Craig Keating supported this statement with his own observation “I was there last year, and I have also witnessed how organized and colorful the event was, while mindful of the surrounding residents within the confines of the park.
Councillor Linda Buchanan also shared positive feedback about the conduct of the event. Mayor Mussatto, who has never missed this celebration each year, whether he is a guest of honor or simply one of the guest dignitaries, supported the request in its entirety and spearheaded the unanimous vote from the council to approve the request for this year’s celebration.This 2012 event, celebrating the 114th anniversary of the declaration of Philippine Independence day by General Emilio Aguinaldo in Kawit-Cavite, poses a huge challenge to for MV-PACES management, and will spell the continuance of the 2-day celebration for 2013 and beyond.
With over 12,000 in attendance during last year’s one-day event, the 2-day event extension is expected to draw more people coming from all over BC and neighboring provinces. Exciting announcements, including surprise participation from the Philippines, will come out next month as preparation goes into full swing.
