The Towson Filipino Festival

Unlike the rain-soaked DC Filipino Festival that took place last weekend, the Towson Filipino Festival was bright and sunny. Because of the weather the turnout was far greater than the DC one which provided a lot of great opportunities for photos.

Such a large turn out.

While still a small festival, the Towson Filipino Festival was a lot of fun. We were there for only a short amount of time but look forward to going again next year.

  1. Thank you for posting these wonderful photos. I believe you captured the spirit and moods of the crowd very well.


  2. I like this photo: the American guy in a green Real Pizza apron, grilling Filipino-style barbecue. Wow! What a multi-cultural blend!

    I am actually looking for yesterday’s pictures. Hope you’ll post it soon.

    Thanks for the comment. Unfortunately I wasn’t able to attend this years Towson Filipino festival so you will see no pictures from me. Your best bet would be to search Flickr!.
