The Livermore community will honor October as Filipino American History Month with the sixth annual Filipino Barrio Fiesta in the Bankhead Plaza this weekend.
A free, family event from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Sunday (Oct. 3), the celebration will include Filipino entertainment, food and cultural displays. It is being presented by the Livermore Filipino-American Organization (Livermore Fil-Am) and Livermore Arts.
“This year features music and dance performances, ‘Heart of My People,’ awards presentations for K Fresh, Thea Beth and Fred B, historical artifacts on display, and an altar for our ancestors. Filipino food will also be sold,” organizers said.
New to the party this year will be the “Get Down East Bay Volume 2,” a breakdancing competition on McLeod Street from 1-5 p.m. And an after-party will run from 5-8 p.m. in the plaza led by Raid Among Friends Twitch DJs.
