FAMAS-awardee, recording artist and TFC star Piolo Pascual will join folk-rock legend Florante, platinum-selling singer Angeline Quinto, cable TV chef Fr. Leo Patalinghug as well as consular and tri-state officials at the opening of Fiesta In America 2013, the event’s organizers announced.

Early comers will have the opportunity to join exciting activities right after the ribbon-cutting.

Nonprofit Fiesta In America 2013 is marking its 15th Anniversary edition at its home for the past 10 years, the Meadowlands Expo Center in Secaucus, NJ on Saturday, August 17 and Sunday, August 18. Film hunk Piolo, singer-songwriter Florante and other luminaries will grace the ribbon-cutting ceremony beginning at 12:00 noon on Saturday, August 17. Rousing multicultural dance numbers are being planned for the ceremony, setting the stage for two full days of business networking, a trade pavilion with over 120 exhibit booths, boasting exotic products not available in U.S. stores, a travel showcase, free small business and self-improvement workshops, Vedic yoga and arnis instructions, a special fusion cooking show by EWTN TV’s Fr. Leo, and a food court packed with native delicacies.

Visitors coming early to Fiesta In America 2013 will find that the event’s opening will glitter with stars, yet it merely foreshadows the expo’s climax on both nights. The multicultural show beginning at 4 pm will regale the crowd with high-energy kung fu and arnis de mano demonstrations, classical Chinese and Korean dancers, sensational Chinese singer Eric Xie, up-and-coming reggaeton stars Anayka, En Alta and Tailon, plus, to top it all, OPM pioneer Florante, TFC’s Angeline Quinto and Piolo Pascual.

Nonprofit Fiesta In America is the largest two-day, indoor gathering of Filipinos on the east coast. Full-day expo tickets are $25 per adult; $30 after 5 pm. Limited VIP concert seats at $60. For more information, call 212-682-6610 or visit
