Baguio City will celebrate its 18th Year of Panagbenga Festival so expect much more spectacular celebration this 2014. The month long celebration is one of the main reasons why tourists gather to Baguio City during the month of February. The highlights of the festival are the Grand Float Parade and the Grand Street Dance Competition.  Panagbenga will start on February 1 (Saturday)  and end March 3 (Monday) 2014.

Panagbenga is a Kankanaey word that means "blossoming of flowers,"  because during the month of February, the flowers from Benguet are in their season of Blooming.  Here is the line-up of events for the 2014 Panagebnga Festival. Updates will be posted soon. :)
