Over the past 43 years, the hard work of the Filipino community and Delano area citizens have built Philippine Weekend into a celebration that has become an icon within the community. Philippine Weekend serves as an avenue for elders to pass along their heritage through cultural events and activities.
Senator Andy Vidak and District Representative Rogelio Caudillo were in attendance during the Opening Ceremonies and presented Senate Certificates of Recognition and Resolutions to this year’s honorees.
