Every February Baguio City celebrates the Panagbenga Festival which is also called the “Baguio Flower Festival“. It is the time of the year when the city of Baguio is adorned with fragrant flowers, and the time when parades, flower floats, and residents dressed in flower-costumes swarm the streets for two days.

The Panagbenga Festival began in 1995 after the sectors of society decided to come up with something to commemorate the beautiful flowers Baguio City is known for and to celebrate the city’s restoration from the devastating earthquake that transpired in 1990. Hence, the Baguio Flower Festival was brought into existence.

Just as the residents of Baguio get busy during the Flower Festival so do the market places. Commercial establishments in Baguio take advantage of the huge crowd drawn by the event, especially on the final weekend of the festival when the number of people is at its peak.

This is also a time when the hotel accommodations in Baguio are most occupied. Before and during the event, hotels are usually packed with guests so it’s better (and wiser) to book your reservations in advance. To avoid hassles when booking for hotel rooms, reservations in Microtel Inn and Suites Baguio, El Cielito Inn Baguio, and Burnham Hotel can be done online. What’s great with booking online is you can have your reservations confirmed a lot faster. And you don’t have to worry about where to stay once you arrive in Baguio City.

There are more events in the Panagbenga Festival than just the flower float parades. Some of these are the skateboard competition, exhibits, concerts, battle of the bands, and the search for Mr. and Ms. Baguio Flower Festival.

You’re also probably thinking about where you, as a spectator, should be stationed in order for you not to miss any of the flower float parades. Standing in Session Road or in Burnham Park will give you an awesome view.

Schedule of activities for this weekend:
Feb 24: Street Dancing Parade and Fireworks Display
Feb 25: Flower Float Parades and Marching Bands
