RICHMOND, Va. -- This weekend marked the 10th annual Filipino Festival and organizers paused to remember a beloved member of the WTVR CBS 6 family.

The community honored longtime WTVR CBS 6 anchor Stephanie Rochon, who was a big supporter of the festival.

Rochon passed away in June Wednesday after a battle with cancer.

Hundreds of people turned out at Our Lady of Lourdes Church on Woodman Road in Glen Allen.

Visitors experienced the richness of Filipino culture through music, folk dances and authentic food.
