So here I am again posting pictures of the Panagbenga Festival Grand Float Parade. The Panagbenga Grand Float Parade as describe by the BFFFI as “The major highlight of the Festival, the biggest and grandest of its kind in the country. Flowers and other organic material decked floats are paraded and displayed.” Yes it is the biggest and grandest as proven by this different participants joining the Panagbenga Grand Float parade. All of the floats will be parading the streets of Baguio City from DILG – Session Road – Maharlika – Harrison Rd. – Melvin Jones Grandstand & Football Grounds. And on the floats are celebrity people or well-known personalities from the region.

With a Grand Prize of 150000PHP and the bragging rights that you have won the 2017 Panagbenga Grand Float Parade is more than enough for this participants to spend more for the fresh flowers and be designed for their company. And yes the flowers are really fresh.
But one of our observations during the festival is that fewer people came to watch as compared to last year it is safe to say that only 1/4 of the population last year is the population this year. This is we think the effect of some of the scare that exploded on social media before the festivals, and also the attacks of the NPA’s before the festival, we were thinking that people got really scared with it and over think that they might attack during the festival. Well Anyways moving on here are the results of the competition. And yes also the pictures.
