Gallery: Celebrating Philippine Independence Day

The County of San Diego Filipino-American Employees’ Association marked Philippine Independence Day with a celebration at the County Operations Center earlier this month. The annual holiday commemorates the Philippines independence from Spain in 1898.

The joyful event provides CSDFEA an opportunity to share the Filipino American culture with fellow employees. This year’s theme was “Paglalayag: Possibilities. Opportunities. Discoveries.” Paglalayag is the Filipino term for voyage or journey. To represent this concept, the employee resource group used the visual of a vinta, which is a traditional boat from the Philippine island of Mindanao.

See a photo gallery of all the fun, food and festivities.
