Off to the Panagbenga Grand Parades on February 27 and 28

Wazzup Pilipinas!

The Panagbenga or the Baguio Flower Festival is when flowers conquer the city of Baguio. The term “Panagbenga” comes from a Kankanaey term meaning “season of blooming.” It is the time when flowers are in full bloom thus many can generously use them to decorate almost everything, from the home interiors to the exteriors of offices and establishments. 

Most of the days in Baguio are always cooler compared to Manila and the other parts of the Philippines so the plants and flowers grow a lot better and more beautiful because of this cool climate. This is why Baguio has been called the Summer Capital of the Philippines because it is a favorite destination when its disturbingly hot in Manila.

Aside from the Strawberry Farm in Benguet where you can eat ice cream with real strawberries, or the other popular places to visit within the areas of Baguio city like Burnham Park and Camp John Hay, Baguio has also been conquered by the biggest mall chain in the country.

Baguio celebrates starting February 1, but the highlight of the event is of course at the very last week which is on February 27, 2016 when they hold the Grand Street Dancing Parade at Panagbenga Park-Session Road-Magsaysay Avenue-Harrison Road – Athletic Bowl starting at 8 am, then on February 28, 2016, the Grand Float Parade will be held at DILG – Session Road – Harrison Road – Athletic Bowl.

 After the parades, you may still want to check the Baguio Blooms Exhibition and Exposition at Lake Drive, Burnham Park which is still ongoing by that time.

Since Baguio is not that big, two days of stay are enough for you to visit the entirety of Baguio City. There are several hotels around but you should book early since Panagbenga season is usually the busiest days when all hotels are fully booked especially on February 27 and 28.
