Carson celebrates Philippine pride with Larry Itliong Day, Fil-Am History Month

When it comes to celebrating Pinoy pride, the Southern California city of Carson has been a leader when it comes to honoring Filipino American History Month.

“Carson is the only city that we know of that celebrates a whole month dedicated to Filipino history month which includes Larry Itliong day, Carson is the only city that recognizes Itliong for what he did in our community, the city of Carson,” said Alex Cainglet.

This year, the city will begin its weekly festivities on Saturday, with a TFC show featuring Fe Delos Reyes and Miguel Vera at the community center.

Each weekend then features more events, from a 5k run in honor of the Leyte landing, to the Fil-Ams got talent dance competition, to several panels, and awards for community leaders.
