Edmonton, AB – In the morning of Sunday, June 14, 2020, the Edmonton Filipino community went around two locations in the city in a vehicle train to celebrate the Philippine Heritage Month. The organizers called the participants and supporters to get creative and decorate their vehicles, highlighting the rich culture of the Philippines. Dignitaries attended the event, including our Consul-General Zaldy Patron, Honorable MLA Kaycee Madu of the Edmonton South-West, MLA Rod Loyola of Edmonton Ellerslie, and MLA Christina Gray of Edmonton-Mill Woods.
The PHM Vehicle Train is just one of the many creative ways the community is finding to observe this joyous occasion, in a time when major gatherings such as the Edmonton Filipino Fiesta and kick-off performances are canceled. The first vehicle train started at 8:00 AM in South Edmonton, beginning from the Mill Woods Town Center SW parking lot. The second vehicle train moved at 9:30 AM in West Edmonton from Callingwood Park, and made a loop around Weber Greens, Rosenthal, and The Hamptons. Over a hundred individuals participated in both locations.
The Edmonton Philippine International Centre Initiative wishes to thank all the individuals, businesses and organizations who participated in the #PHMvehicletrain. The initiative is also grateful to the support of Sundance College in its PHM campaigns.
