Great afternoon at the Salinas Asian Festival. We began setting up our exhibit last night at the Filipino Community Hall in Salinas.

Smiles and good food. The Filipino Community of Salinas Valley always cooks up some great meals for this event. There was chicken adobo, pancit, lumpia, toron, ensaimada, halo-halo, and more!

Wellington Lee with Cathy Chavez-Miller took us on a tour of Chinatown, and the stripped interior of the Republic Cafe, which hopefully will become Salinas Chinatown’s Asian Cultural Center.
Memories of past dinners and get-togethers in the Republic Cafe.
Deborah Silguero (National Steinbeck Center) also gave a talk about the Cultural Center.
Back at the Filipino Community Center — Zuumba!
