Panagbenga Flower Festival held in Baguio City, Philippines has some of the most amazing & creative floral floats this bloom blogger has ever seen! Which really shouldn’t be much of a surprise considering Panagbenga means “season of blooming”. This month long festival is held every February in the capitol summer city. On the day of the Grand Float Parade, the streets are lined with people waiting to view the spectacular flower float creations.
