Dear Friends in the Community,

Would you like to be a part of a fabulous, colourful and very exciting event to showcase our traditional and iconic cultural and religious fiesta celebrations? 

If so, come join us to the culmination of the Balik-Tanaw Philippine Arts Exhibition at the Peacock Arts Gallery (Auburn Botanical Gardens, corner Chisholm and Chiswick Roads, Auburn) on Saturday, September 2 from 12:00 noon.

Register your organization or organise a group to participate in this historic-first-of-a-kind parade to promote our great Philippine culture in one of the following:
1.    Proudly depicting your favourite cultural or religious fiesta of any province or barrio.  Promote or spotlight your Charity Queens in the Sagala- Santacruzan and Procession or simply showcase your tribal costume and dances.
2.    Community leaders are invited to join us in carrying the Bayanihan house (named “Hopping Spirit House” by the artist) to symbolise Filipino Unity and Cooperation. Other community members may join this “lipat-bahay” by carrying typical domestic articles and farm implements.
3.    Wear flowery and colourful summer dresses and join in the “bulaklakan” or “panagbenga” group. Express the natural joyfulness and exuberance of Pinoys by carrying real or artificial flowers or simply wearing Filipino summer fashion, accessories and crinkets!

There will be Filipino food stalls, closing program with performances by the best of Filipino-Australian artists and distribution of certificates of participation. We are expecting a very large multicultural crowd as the Gardens will also be having its famous annual Japanese Cherry Blossoms and Spring Festival. Entry is free!
