Utah Filipinos celebrate culture in 2017 Filipino Festival

Utah Filipinos celebrate culture in 2017 Filipino Festival (KUTV)

(KUTV) Hundreds of Filipinos across Utah came together Saturday to celebrate the culture of the Philippines in the fourth-annual Filipino Festival.

The day was packed with cultural performances and Filipino folk songs.

Utah has one of the fastest-growing Filipino populations in the United States.

The Filipino community originally organized it as a celebration of the Philippines' independence day but decided that they should expand celebration to all aspects of Filipino life.

The Philippines declared from Spain over a hundred years ago but this is only the third celebration in Utah.

Organizers in Utah's Filipino community say they hope this celebration continues to grow and becomes a favorite for Filipinos and Americans alike.
