The 114th Philippine Independence Day

I was checking the news a while ago if Philippine Independence is being celebrated by the Filipinos in the US. Glad to note that in New York City, the Philippine Independence Day is celebrated every year (first Sunday of June). This event is well-attended by the American-Filipino community.The theme for 2012 is: Ang Bagong Pilipino: Bagong Kalayaan. Bagong Layunin. Bagong Pagkakaisa which means "The New Filipino: New Independence. New Purpose. New Oneness".

This celebration is for the Filipino American community in the Northeast United States and I wonder if we have a celebration like this in the South? More than half a million Filipinos live in the Northeast and I am so proud of the unity they have shown to the world.They are creating awareness about the Philippine culture and news like this, makes me happy and proud. Filipino Americans need this kind of event to rekindle their roots and heritage. The significance of this event is the Philippine Independence from Spain, marked as 114th since June 12,1898.

The 2012 Philippine Independence Day Parade in New York City took place on the 3rd of June at Madison Avenue, following the tradition of the celebration being on the first Sunday of June.
