APBC - A Hit in Melbourne

The annual Philippine Fiesta in Melbourne was held on 28-29 November at the Exhibition Buildings in Carlton, a great venue for any kind of event especially one with all the colour and excitement of a Filipino community festival.  Thousands of people flocked through the doors over the two days to watch performances, hear great music, experience “Gabi ng Sining” and enjoy great food, fun and festivities.
