My husband and I, together with our blogger friends, are currently here in Baguio for the Eurotel Baguio event. Too bad, we missed the flower festival parade that was held last week. However, Baguio is still celebrating the month-long annual flower festival.
Baguio Flower Festival also known as Panagbenga Festival is one of the famous and world renowned festival in the Philippines. Baguio is also known as “Flower Garden City of the North” celebrates the festival in February and the highlights of the festivities includes flower, flower exhibits, lectures, garden tours, floral contest and a parade of floats.
The festival acquired a local name, Panagbenga, meaning “a season of blossoming, a time for flowering”. The festival was created as a tribute to the city’s flowers and as a way to rise up from the devastation of the 1990 Luzon earthquake.
And speaking of flowers, I have to check Hartford flower delivery. I need to send some fresh flowers to my aunt in Connecticut.
But I’ll do it later since it’s already 8 in the morning and it’s our 2nd day of Eurotel’s bloggers event, so I have to get ready now. I’ll update this post later. =)
