The Eighth Annual Filipino Festival will be in full-swing again at Our Lady of Lourdes Catholic Church, with specialties from the Philippines, including halo-halo, adobo and nearly 3,000 lumpia, all made by volunteers who come to the church every Friday night to work together. "We started on the things you can make ahead of time in late May or early June," says Sue Berinato, volunteer spokeswoman for the festival. "So many things, though, you have to wait and make the week before. We'll be working right up till [the festival]." Last year, 10,000 people arrived to sample the food, listen to music and watch Filipino line-dancing. "The [volunteer] hours are long, but when we get to game day, we relax," Berinato says. "It's time for us to enjoy the day." The festival starts on Friday, Aug. 9, from 5 to 10 p.m. and continues on Saturday, Aug. 10, from 10 a.m. to 10 p.m. A donation of $2 is suggested.
