The iconic Calgary Tower in the City of Calgary was lit up in the colors of the Philippine flag on September 4.
Red, blue, yellow and white lights adorned the 190.8-meter landmark structure to cap the night on the first day of the three-day Fiesta Filipino 2020.
Organized by the Philippine Festival Council of Alberta, Fiesta Filipino held its first virtual celebration in six years amid the COVID-19 pandemic.
Fiesta Filipino’s activities from 04 to 06 September 2020 also included a film showing, musical and dance performances, a TED talk about Philippine heritage, and a comedy show.
In his video message, Philippine Consul General to Calgary Zaldy Patron thanked the Fiesta Filipino organizers for highlighting Philippine heritage and culture, and for showcasing Filipino talents and artists during the event.
