BAGUIO City is now ready for the presentation of the two highlights of Panagbenga Festival, the Grand Street Dancing Parade on February 24 and the Grand Float Parade on February 25.
Mayor Mauricio Domogan and Panagbenga Festival 2018 Councilor Elmer Datuin said spectators and visitors will be expecting a more beautiful, captivating, and exciting presentation this Saturday and Sunday with the support of all the participants and the entire community.
Members of the community like the trainees of the Philippine National Police Cordillera Administrative Region Training Center have been helping in cleaning and in making the different villages beautiful in preparation for the influx of tourists for the much awaited events.
The schools in the city and its neighboring towns and as far as Aurora Province are one in making the festival successful. In grand street dancing competition elementary division, eight schools are joining, five in high school and 14 in the open category.
The Grand Float Parade will be star studded as usual with celebreties joining in the 22 floats that will parade down Session Road until the Melvin Jones football grounds.
The celebration will not be complete without spectators. That’s the reason why tourists are enjoined to visit the city in these two important activities of the festival. Let’s all welcome them with warm hospitality.
For the city’s residents who will give way for the tourists to have a better view of the events, worry no more because PTV Cordillera, your government television station will have a full live coverage for the Grand Street Dancing and Float Parade for free at TV channel 8 and Channel 3 in both Sky Cable and Mountainview.
The rich culture of Cordillera and Baguio’s creativity being hailed as a “Creative City” by UNESCO, will definitely be showcased in these crowd drawing events with this year’s theme “Celebration of Culture and Creativity.”
More than just a festival, Panagbenga is a symbol of the rise of Baguio after it was extensively devastated during the 1990 Luzon killer earthquake. Let’s all make Panagbenga Festival 2018 another good memory to remember for everyone.
