Another “riot” is about to unfold in the city on July 23-24, 2011. Only this time, it will be “riotous” fun, great food, and non-stop entertainment as “HATAW PINOY 2011”, the Philippine Summer Festival unfolds at the Forum of Vancouver’s Olympic landmark, the Pa­cific National Exhibition (PNE). The Filipino Canadian Cultural Heritage Society (FCCHS) announced its second staging of the event, which was launched last year at the Richmond Olympic oval grounds and came out to be the largest summer event of the Filipino community.

With more than 120,000 Filipino Ca­nadians in BC, where a good 96,000 are scattered all over the Metro Vancouver area, some 10%-15% are expected to grace the festivities, with various repre­sentative groups coming from the neigh­bouring cities of Kelowna, Kamloops, Vic­toria, Whistler, Squamish, Pemberton and from across the border in Seattle,WA. Last year’s celebration also saw the participa­tion of some families who came all the way from Calgary, Alberta and planned to have their clan reunion by attending the Summer Festival at the Oval.

The biggest highlight of this year’s event program line-up is the visit of GMA “Ka­puso” stars gracing the event and provid­ing the main entertainment- led by multi-awarded movie actor/performer and film director, CESAR MONTANO, best known for his dynamic, award-winning portrayal of our national hero, Dr. Jose Rizal in the movie “Jose Rizal”. The film has become legendary and unprecedented as it por­trays Philippine society during the Span­ish colonization of the Philippines and its relevance up to the present day.
