One of the many events during Cal Day at the University of California in Berkeley was the Spring Fest: The Edith Coliver Festival of Cultures (International Spring Festival).  Held on 12 April 2014 at the International House in Berkeley, the Philippine Consulate General once again participated in this celebration.  Guests at the Consulate’s booth were eager to learn about the country and its famous tourist locations.  Filipino American students were also kept up to date of programs and upcoming events sponsored by the Consulate and its Filipino Community partners.  Visitors also had a chance to sample native sweets that are well-loved by every Filipino.
