AAPI Heritage Month Salinas Fiesta

In the early 1960s, the Salinas Association of San Diego was established as a support network of community members from Rosario, Cavite, Philippines (formerly known as Salinas). The group has had a long-held annual tradition of the "Salinas Fiesta" that honors the patron saint of Rosario and celebrates community, religion, and culture. While the Fiesta location changes every year, Coronado's beaches have served as the gathering spot many times, as seen in these photos from 1961.
