BAGUIO — An estimated 1.5 million tourists and locals attended Baguio City’s much-awaited Panagbenga flower festival, which is now in its 23rd year.
Just last year, Baguio City was named as one of UNESCO’s Creative City for crafts and folk arts joining the network of 180 creative cities and this year’s festival was meant to showcase the culture and creativity of the Cordillera region.
Among the highlights of Panagbenga 2018 was the Grand Street Dance Parade participated by local student groups and street dancers, who came from the different provinces in the north, some coming all the way from Aurora province; and the Grand Float Parade participated by 27 floats.
Most of the local participants showcased cultural dances, swaying to the familiar Panagbenga Hymn.
Here’s another of our short article published by ABS-CBN, see link.
Here are some of my shots during the 2-day parade.
