Newmarket Annual Santacruzan 2017

The Filipino-Canadian Association of York Simcoe  presented Santacruzan 2017, a traditional parade representing a unique Philippines tradition. The Santacruzan comes from the Spanish phrase "santa cruz" (Holy Cross) which honours the finding of the "True Cross" by Queen Helena of Constantinople and her son Constantine the Great. Each participant in the parade represent a biblical figure.

I was proud to join with our community to celebrate the annual SantaCruzan festival and Parade in #Newmarket hosted by the Filipino Canadian Association.
