At the RFC Summer Fun, St Patricks Hall, Rochdale

The RFC Summer Fun is usually held in the month of October where Filipino families of Rochdale converge at an announced venue for an excitement-filled Sportsfest.  Filipino Parlor games are played which are participated in by both young children, teenagers, and adults.  Prizes are at stake to every winner. This whole day activity starts at 8:00AM and ends at 5:00PM.
