Historic Filipinotown walking tours and more -- this Saturday

Want to learn more about the Historic Filipinotown neighborhood just west of Downtown LA?

On Saturday, September 26, the Pilipino Workers' Center (153 Glendale Blvd.) is coordinating a number of activities including walking tours and screenings of work by Pdub Productions, a program through which local young people create media presentations about their Historic Filipinotown (Hi Fi) neighborhood.

Mobile Hi Fi Walking Tours will be conducted from 1 p.m. to 6 p.m., and allow participants to experience the neighborhood's past and present through interactive mobile devices as well as longtime local resident tour guides. Tours are free, but reservations are required.

The Barrio Fiesta featuring food and live music will begin at 6:30 p.m. This event is a fundraiser to benefit the Pilipino Workers' Center.
