Panagbenga Festival 2016

By on March 2, 2016

Panagbenga Flower Festival 2016 draws big crowd in Baguio city. The crowd bursting into spontaneous cheers filled the areas in front of Convention Center and thousands lined the streets of Session road as early as 3 a.m. to see the flower float parade. Others endured the long hours of waiting and sleeping on both roadside spaces and sidewalks, motorist and commuters having a hard time to get out from this point because of road closures nearby.

Panagbenga Festival is a popular festival in the Philippines, the most attended parade that includes parade of flower floats, street dancing, Philippine folk dance,ethnic dance, marchers, band music performed in traditional costumes. Some t v personalities and movie stars attended this event.

I was around as early as 5 am to take snapshots of this event. Of course, I want a hassle free photography with no interruptions and distractions, I don’t want to experience different factors, I already organized everything for myself beforehand.  Street photography is quite hard to be with big crowd but anywhere around, it’s fun to hear enjoyable shouting and screaming of the crowd. We Filipinos are happy even when we are facing different crisis, we are hospitable to welcome our guests especially during feast. This event surely preserves the customs of particular race.

Street Photography of the Panagbenga Festival floats, all photos done as early as 5 a.m. just before the parade, I started following the parade route stretching from the Convention center, Session road to SM.

Street dancing has certainly been an important part of the festival, a form of entertainment, tradition and history.Bringing up the symbol of the festival, what a festive feeling to smell the fragrant flowers throughout the street. The flower floats are the best attractions made by the people of Baguio, all beautiful flowers seems to bloom on the float. Thank you so much for that. Let’s get started !

Truly breathtaking to bring the flowers from the garden to decorate all the floats, range of colors and the arrangement of flowers according to the float theme appeared artfully creative. One can just imagine, a day before to gather all the right flowers to form in style, shaping and mixing patterns of colors adding elegant highlights to emphasized the whole outline.

Baguio city, the city of the cold sun have benefited from their cold location that some unique variety of flowers mostly originated there.

Month of March is summer in the Philippines.During summer,work increases and gives me the chance for an outdoor gardening.Since we are now experiencing the direct heat of the sun, perfect time to plant any variety of cacti because it suits the dry area of the garden and surely flourish in equally full sunlight.Most species of cacti have hard spine and I hate the needle-like protruding spines. Preferably, I would like to have the kind with a  white hair growing on the stem and the rounded bearing red,pink and yellow flowers. Although half part of the garden is moist.
