Music and Fun at the Panagbenga Festival

I can hear Aguinaldo Elementary School’s drum and lyre band practice right now and I am so relieved they are not playing Psy’s “Oppa Gangnam Style! ” They are playing J. Lo’s “Dance Again” and the band also does a mean version of Styx’s “Desert Moon”!

  1. i want to go back to Baguio again. My first time going there as when I had a seminar and so I wasn't able to explore the place. 🙁 How I wish to attend Flower Festival!!

  2. I haven't attended this but I actually, wish to see this because I would like to photograph the flower floats. On the other hand, I also don't like to go to places if there are so many people!

  3. That was really nice festival there. I know baguio will be full of tourist again this love month because of the festival. I haven't been to panagbenga and I wish I can have a vacation and exerience the festival.

  4. In the Philippines, the first half of the year is when fiestas are celebrated and oh we have so many colorful and festive ways to celebrate. And Panagbenga is one of my dream events that I really really want to experience and take lots of pictures with. I hope next year. 🙂

  5. I am planning to go to Baguio this summer with the family as my kids are requesting to go there. I hope na matuloy kami as we all needed a break. Are you from Baguio Sis?

  6. I'd love to be part of the festivities but I don't think it would be a good idea to go there with two preschoolers in tow. We'd just have to wait a few more years before we can all see Panagbenga firsthand.

  7. I always wish to witness Penagbenga festival but budget is always the hindrance for realizing my wish.. I hope one day I can..-Rosemarie/Gven-Rose

  8. This is one festival that I really wish to experience! …only if Baguio was closer to Manila… Imagine all the flowers accumulated for this affair! What do they do with it after?

  9. I really want to be there, but I'm having a hard time looking for affordable lodging on those dates na. Nahihiya naman ako makituloy sa kamag-anak ko. hehe. Do you know of a place we can crash in? Seryoso ako ha. hehe

  10. as always panagbenga is an extremely grand festival, i had observed it once when i was still in college and through my organization, we had a conference at your city and coincide the panagbenga
    that was grand and fun

  11. Grand festival indeed. Also the time of the year when Baguio is jam-packed with tourists and hotels are fully-booked. If I happen to go there, could I camp at your backyard na lang? Lol!

  12. Even if we wanted to catch the remainder of the festival, the kids still have school and are still too young to muscle their way through crowds. 🙂 I'm afraid they would just get squished so we're waiting a few more years before taking the entire fam to the Panagbenga. 🙂

  13. I really hope I can join Panagbenga Festival soon. It looks fun and I like Baguio. I hope I can attend the festival next year *crossed-fingers*

  14. I have yet to experience Baguio's Flower Festival. How I wish I could just move to Baguio City and live there! Its just so beautiful. My childhood dream was to buy a log cabin type house in Baguio. It is still my dream today.

  15. lovely shots! I like the fairies on the last photo.

    You know what, even though flower festival is a sight to see, I just can't go to Baguio during those times. Baguio is for me a very serene place and I just couldn't go there during the times where there is so much people.. parang hindi Baguio pag ganun haha
