Panagbenga Festival blog is a Sun.Star blog that features the month-long annual flower festival in Baguio City, the summer capital of the Philippines. The festival is held during the month of February.

Panagbenga Festival¬†was created as a tribute to Baguio City’s flowers and as a way to rise up from the 1990 earthquake that devastated the city.

The event highlights floats that are decorated with flowers, including street dancers, wearing flower-inspired costumes, that is inspired by the Bendian, an Ibaloi dance of celebration that came from the Cordillera region.

A side from economic boosts from tourism, the festival also helped the younger generation of indigenous people to rediscover their culture’s old traditions. (Source: Wikipedia)
