I've been attending the Festival of Philippine Arts and Culture for many years. It still is the event that I've attended for the most
consecutive years. I've seen many changes to this festival over the years. I still remember my first FPAC when it was still held
at LA City College. I've been there through the good and the bad. It looked as if this was another year in which cutbacks hurt
this festival. I don't think I've ever seen so much empty space within the festival grounds as I did this year. It seemed that there
was a lot less booths and pavilions. There was less to see. However, one thing that it did not lack was the quality of performers
and attendance. Unfortunately, I was only able to attend on Saturday this year. This was the first time that I've only attended
one day of the festival since my first FPAC. Many of the bigger names on the entertainment side of the festival were on
Sunday, and it seems like that's the way it always is. I was still amazed at the big crowd that was in attendance for Saturday.
There were years when I didn't feel that Saturday attendance wasn't as strong as it could be. This year was one the busier
Saturdays that I've seen for this festival. For a year where there seemed to be a lot of cutbacks, it was nice to see strong
attendance. I hope that there are better days ahead for this festival. It still is one of my favorite festivals of the year. I'll
definitely be back next year. Whether I can go for one day or two is another story.
