BRISBANE FILIPINO BARRIO FIESTA 2010

 YERONGA B. FIESTA 2010 © BUSOG! SARAP! 2010

Brisbane Filipino Barrio Fiesta takes place once a year in June during the celebration of the Philippines Independence Day.  This year it was held in Yeronga State School and it was a wonderful day!  Sun was shining, birds were singing…..(not!…just pulling your leg!).  The sun was shining alright, to the delight of everybody as previous Barrio Fiesta events was always over casted with gray clouds and constant rain.  I think the recession fever is gone and said bye! bye! as the crowd who attending the event was all willing to part with their money as fast as we can take them.
