Description of Events
Grand Marshal Gala
Grand Marshal Gala is an annual formal event conducted by PIDCI and attended by the Filipino-American community to Honor the year's Grand Marshal of the Philippine Independence Day Parade.
The Mrs. Kalayaan (Mrs. Independence) Coronation Pageant and Gala is a commemorative event to mark the tenth (10th) anniversary celebration of the incorporation of PIDCI Council.
Diwa Ng Kalayaan Selection, Coronation Pageant & Gala
The Diwa ng Kalayaan (Spirit of Independence) beauty contest is a mainstay event of the annual commemoration having been part of it for 21 long years. It is now the number one beauty, brains and talent contest among 16-to-25-year-old dalagang Filipina (Filipino bachelorettes) in the Northeastern Unites States Filipino and Filipino-American community, if not the entire North America. The Grand Prize for this contest is a round trip airline ticket to the Philippines.
It's a Filipino Food Festival and a Mini-Expo. On the East side of the Avenue, two blocks of sumptuous Filipino food: the distinctive, ubiquitous mouth-watering Filipino barbeque, the cool cooling truly Filipino Halo-Halo (Mix-Mix); and on the West side of the Avenue, straddling beautiful Madison Square Park, a two-block Mini-Expo of goods, merchandise, services and corporate booths aplenty.
