Marianita Albano moved from the northern Philippines to the Eastern Shore of Maryland in the early 1970s. Her community of only a few Filipino immigrants has grown since then, and many families have brought, carried on, and adapted important Filipino cultural traditions to their new home. Among these is the Festival of Santo Niño de Cebú (Sinulog). In this episode of Chesapeake Traditions Today meet Marianita, and learn about the importance of this vibrant festival to the Filiphino community of the greater Salisbury, MD region.
