This month of February, it is whole round month to celebrate our very own festival. Our festival is known as “Panagbenga” or Flower Festival. The local people showcased the different ways of crafting these freshly pick flowers around the city. This morning, I decided to tour around the city and had seen these sample landscape with flowers in the local park. It is so very nice to see such creations by the local people. Tourists from different places are starting to flock in the city. As expected, more people will visit my city to witness the flowers float parade. Photo Credit: Shavkat (February 2016)

You're from Baguio? There will be a lot of tourists coming in for the festival, and also to probably enjoy the cold weather there.

I really wish to someday go to Baguio and witness this festivity. However, your city is very far from mine. Someday if given the time and have the budget to go there, I will surely not miss the flower festival.

@shameigene Are you working in a government agency? Well, most government agencies' employees choose the city for team building. I hope you will have the chance.

I went there during the festival but not during the weekends when they had the streetdancing and fluvial parade. I was also there during the Session Rd in bloom.
