Today we celebrated our 109th anniversary of Philippine Independence Day with a parade to honor our ancestors and a free festival full of fun and lots of food for the whole family. It was a huge success with lot of Filipinos present during the celebration. As part of our celebration , a Santa Cruzan procession was also held together with the parade.
