With 5,500 people attending, the excitement behind Fiesta Filipino’s Stampede Agahan has not diminished in its third year.
Serving up a different breakfast than the usual pancakes that dominate the morning festivities during the Calgary Stampede, Agahan served up a plate of garlic fried rice, Filipino hot dogs, longanisa, scrambled eggs and pandesal.
The popularity of Agahan also brought out leaders in the community including Premier Rachel Notley, United Conservative Party leader Jason Kenney, and number of other ministers and cabinet members.
While filling up on food, guests also filled up on live entertainment from local bands and singers in Calgary’s Filipino community.
Organized by the Fiesta Filipino Council, Agahan serves as a preview of the fun and festivities Calgary will witness next month during Fiesta Filipino August 31 to September 2, 2018.
