MANILA — This year’s The Filipino Channel’s 20th Anniversary highlighted Filipino greatness on its TFC Fiesta Caravan with a parade of great Filipino performances, sights and sounds.

According to ABS-CBN Europe Ltd. managing director Edgardo Garcia, this  year’s caravan of events brings a different flavour as TFC builds partnerships with organizations “to bring world-class Filipino talent and the Philippines’ colorful culture closer to Pinoys all over Europe.”

“What makes this year’s celebrations different is that it coincides with TFC’s 20th anniversary, which fittingly highlights the galing or greatness of the Filipino,” Garcia added.

An event in Vienna staged by the Filipino network with ABS-CBN’s Regional Network Group started the celebration.

Teleserye stars Piolo Pascual and Angelica Panganiban and dance icons Maja Salvador and Enchong Dee, and comedienne Pooh starred the event held at the Austria Center Vienna.

The kick-off party was followed by the 116th Philippine Independence Day celebrations on June 7 and 8 at the Morden Park by the London Road in Morden with Enchong Dee, Jon Avila and Ima Castro.

Another round of celebrations will also be held in June 29 to celebrate the Philippine Independence and 12th Philippine Spain Friendship Day at the Colegio del Nuestra Señora de Consolacion, Plaza Madre Molas in Madrid.
