Panagbenga Flower Festival 2014: Who Don't Want To Miss Out?

Baguio City is situated at the northern part of Luzon in fact it is a very much urbanized city. This was developed by Americans in 1900 at the place of an Ibaloi village, also known as Kafagway . It is also referred to as the Summer Capital of the Philippines.


The festival gets the name from a Kankanaey term, it means “a season for blossoming,” that’s why, it is also called the Flower Festival. It is also the biggest festival in the northern region that features street dance and flower float competitions.

Panagbenga Flower Festival is a long month celebration and the theme for 2014 is “Inspiring the Community for a Greener Tomorrow”.
