Video: Santa Cruz de Mayo

The Santa Cruz de Mayo, usually held the entire month of May in the Philippines, involves a fiesta, flowers and the Virgin Mary. Instead of parading statues of saints, as done in other processions, townspeople wear costumes to represent different characters of the Bible. To read more about Saturday's Philippine heritage celebration at St. Augustine's Church in Oak Harbor, check out this week's edition of the Whidbey News-Times.
