Never would’ve thought I’d ever do Baybayin at a zoo. This Saturday, May 12, I’ll be taking part of the very 1st Pacific Islander Heritage Day celebration at the zoo. Should be interesting because I’ll be doing something a bit different….think animals and Baybayin.
Bring your family to experience the incredible sights, sounds and flavors of the Pacific during Pacific Islander Heritage Day at the Zoo! From 10 a.m. to 4 p.m., come see amazing, cultural dance performances by Spark of Creation, hear traditional Hawaiian slack key guitar by award-winning Patrick Landeza, watch performances by the Filipino Cultural Center (FCC) Kulintang Group as well as the Galing Bata/Quality Children After-School program. Plus, enjoy tasty treats specially made for this exciting event. All activities are free with paid Zoo admission. So, spend a day at the Zoo and immerse yourself into the Pacific Islander culture.
So do you think that Filipinos are Pacific Islanders?
