Panagbenga Festival 2012
Many times I have been into Baguio but this is the first time I am here during the month-long annual celebration of the Panagbenga Flower Festival!
Pangbenga literally means “A season for blossoming” according to the Mayor of the city, Mr. mauricio Domogan, during his welcome remarks at the Baguio City Athletic Bowl.
Here are some of my shots from this year’s Grand Street Dancing Parade last February 26.
Start of parade at the Panagbenga Park.
Notice one of the men =p
Students from different schools wearing only bahag (loincloth) while performing tribal dances on the street.
Beautiful smiles from contingents.
