The culture of the Philippines was on display on Saturday night during the 41st Annual Filipino.

The event is hosted by the Prince Rupert Filipino-Canadian Association each year, with the 2014 celebration being another sell out.

The event started with socializing before a delicious buffet dinner made by Number One Fast Food was served, followed by a number of dignitary speeches.

The entertainment began with the “Chilli Cha-Cha” dance choreographed by Ray McIntosh, followed by four spectacular dance numbers that Berna Silab-Lama choreographed, “Zamboanga”, “Piliin Mo Ang Pilipinas”, “Tinikling” and “Banana Boat” performed throughout the night.

Triple Bypass then provided live music for dancing late into the night.
