"Delano's Philippine Weekend celebration dates back to 1975 and was started by local high school and college students. What began as a simple basketball tournament to unite Delano's Filipino community has evolved into a 43 year-old tradition that brings families of all backgrounds together. The entire month-long celebration has been organized by the non-profit, all volunteer group known as Philippine Weekend, Inc. Our events are truly a hometown celebration dedicated to celebrating, preserving, and sharing our Filipino culture and heritage. In the past, our events have drawn thousands of people to Delano to participate in the multi-day celebrations." - courtesy of
