This would be the 17th season of Panagbenga or Flower Festival, an annual festival of Baguio City.
For this year, the festival has the theme of “Community Convergence for a Sustainable Tourism Growth”.
The most anticipated and interesting to watch in the Festival is the Grand Float Parade, which will be today, February 26.
