Last year’s organizers of NaFFAA’s highly successful Fiesta Filipino, Noel Cazimero (NaFFAA NV Special Events Exec) and FACCGN Board Officer Ranier Galgana (NaFFAA NV’s Chief Liason Officer) unveiled the plans for this year’s Fiesta Filipino to be held at the Boulevard Mall on June 2 and 3, 2012.  Particular comment was made regarding the Asian population demographic from the 2010 census indicating that the Asian population in Nevada more than doubled over the last ten years, and that the Filipino population in Nevada is larger than all the other Asians combined.
