Chattanooga Filipino community, to hold lechon feast
Lechon in Tennessee? This Fil-Am community is definitely making it happen!
Filipino community in Chattanooga will be hosting a festival or a pig roast and also to gather the 300-member Filipino-American Association of Greater Chattanooga, which doesn’t even include their extended family yet, Washington Times reported.
Local Filipino-Americans aims to share their energetic and lively culture through three passions Southerners and Filipinos share – music, dancing and pork – lechon.
The festival will be highlighting lechon de leche, a local delicacy that’s new to the eyes and tastebuds of the people in Chattanooga.
“We’re hoping any Chattanoogan who wants to will come to our lechon party in August. There are absolutely no restrictions on who can join,” Association President Elvie Smith said in the report. “The admission to the party is just $5 if you bring a potluck dish. And it doesn’t have to be fancy, just something you enjoy.”
The group’s lechon feast will be happening Sunday, Aug. 7, at 11 a.m. at the Harrison Bay State Park Pavilion, Washington Times said.
