It's my first time to experience the Panagbenga festival. For my readers from another country - Panagbenga is the flower festival of the City of Baguio. It's a month long celebration - and the most attended event is the float parade ( where floats made of flowers parade from Panagbenga Park to Melvin Jones stadium ).
The queens tried to catch the start of the parade - but missed the start because apparently it starts at 7:00 AM ( we went to Upper Session Road at 8:00 AM ). There was already a large crowd at Upper Session Road. We won't be able to see anything by staying there so we decided to walk to Session Road near SM - and found even a larger crowd. I thought of just going through the public market and walking towards Session Road along Magsaysay Ave. and we finally found a spot at Maharlika.
I wish I could be closer for the parade but - still had good enough shots to share with you my dear readers. Here are some of the highlights of the Parade.
