aliwan 2009 Panagbenga Festival (3/25)

PANAGBENGA FESTIVAL (Baguio City, Benguet)


From the Cordillera Administrative Region, we have the famous flower festival which showcases the myriad blooms for which the city has become famous.   2009  is  Baguio’s centennial year, and to celebrate their culture of caring, they have sent Cordillera warriors garbed in traditional weave and maidens wearing the four-colored wings of their butterfly centennial logo to show the metamorphosis of the city in the last 100 years.  The Panagbenga float incorporates miniature rice terraces from the Mountain Province region, together with a caving of an Igorot boar hunter,  a Cordillera woman with a kayabang – the four-cornered rattan backpack laden with vegetables from La Trinidad, and  miniature waterfalls.  The float showcases the freshness of Baguio’s attractions, and the cool ambience of the country’s summer capital   Festival muse – Parul Framil Shah.
