Toronto_ June 8-9, 2013: After 300 years of Spanish colonial rule, the Philippines was proclaimed independent by the Filipino forces led by Emilio Aguinaldo 115 years ago. It has since then been marked as a National Day and is celebrated by Filipinos all over the world.

In the Greater Toronto Area (GTA), where the largest concentration of Filipino communities in Canada is located, several festivities were organized by Filipino associations in different boroughs.  The 2-day Pistahan sa Toronto sponsored by the Filipino Centre Toronto (FCT), at Nathan Phillips Square on June 8 and 9, was just one festivity among the many in the GTA that brought Pinoys together.
