Filipino Santacruzan Festival in N.J.

Asian Journal, News Feature, Posted: Aug 06, 2009

The Philippine Fiesta in America has become an annual summer destination for Filipino-Americans. This year, it will open its doors on Aug. 15 at the Meadowlands Expo Center in Secaucus, New Jersey. The Marian march of queens and their consorts and angels is a tradition still observed on both sides of the Pacific. Introduced by the Spanish colonialists centuries ago, Santacruzan is the culmination of the colorful Flower Festival of the Philippines. It depicts the finding of the Holy Cross by Queen Helena, mother of Constantine the Great, and the joyful celebration that followed.
