Filipino Hall Celebrates 61 Years

Hundreds of people gather at a local community hall in Wapato this weekend to celebrate Filipino culture.

It's part of the 61st Anniversary Celebration of the Flipino Community Hall.

Guests were invited to enjoy buffet-style food and watch dance performances put on by children and adults from the community.

The hall was constructed in 1952 by pioneer Filipino families that settled into the Yakima Valley area in the 1930's.
