To give you a little info about this event…
Panagbenga is a month-long annual flower festival celebrated in Baguio which literally means “season of blooming”. The festival includes floats and street dancing presented by dancers of all ages with flower-decorated costumes. Sounds interesting? Yes it is, makes you wanna go shoot and capture every detail of it.

So as far as shooting is concerned, let me give you some tips for you to avoid the hassles when shooting. (Just like what we’ve experienced)

1. You should have a Panagbenga ID to gain access in restricted areas/ spots upon taking pictures.
2. If you don’t have the ID, then you should wake up early, as early as 5am just to have a nice and clear spot.

So in spite of being rejected from the ideal shooting area, here are some of my photos taken on this event. Check this out!

Watching them showcase their “moves” on ethnic beat and world music is absolutely entertaining. Boys with axe and Girls with butterfly wings while dancing? I must say, this is a groovy festival you surely don’t wanna miss!
