In 1990, Baguio was significantly damaged by earthquake, as a result the city’s tourism was badly affected. The history of Panagbenga Festival dates back in 1995, the primary objective of this festival is to revive the tourists to visit Baguio City, after the catastrophic earthquake.
Panagbenga Festival is now on its 15th year, it is very successful and each year the number of visitors increase. The festival ends on the last weekend of February, sealed by grand parade of colorful floats filled with beautiful flowers, coupled by graceful street dancing.
After three years of longing to see, I have finally witnessed the grand float parade.
