Filipinos Making Waves 2011

Filipinos Making Waves Festival is said to be the largest festival gathering of Filipino youth in Toronto. I happened to pass by Yonge and Dundas Square today and stayed for a couple of hours but I didnt see a large crowd that the festival is boasting of. Maybe, the huge crowd that theyre talking about converges in the evening when the main performances are in full force? Too bad, I had to go to my next appointment, an alleyway party at Ossington.

The mini-parade was not impressive. Only few marched. And Im guessing, theyre the same people who do it every year. Could have been better and fun (and head-turner, too!) if the parade was done like a street dancing parade showcasing the different festivals (Sinulog, At-Atihan, Kahimunan, Kadayawan, Maskara, etc…) of the 7, 107 islands of the country.

Why street dancing? Because its so Filipino. And it would be more fabulous if they could make it as a street dancing competition. If they wanted to showcase Filipino culture, talent, creativity and uniqueness—street dancing concept will surely captivate the passersby at Yonge and Dundas streets. Thus, it wouldnt only attract mostly Filipinos but also other people of different culture.
