THE PEOPLE, THE FLOWER FLOAT, THE CELEBRITIES AND THE PANAGBENGA FESTIVAL 2012
We’re on the 2nd day of the Panagbenga Festival and for this time we can see the street parade of floats decorated by fresh flowers from the flower farms around Benguet.
Float parades are participated by different companies, brands, media networks and also organizations from Baguio. Most anticipated floats are the flower float of Smart, ABS CBN and GMA 7, their float are one of the colorful and biggest in the parade, plus they have their own celebrities to greet and welcome everyone for the Panagbenga Festival.
I learned some new tricks for my photo coverage, on day 1 I just stand around the area and got tried doing the photo coverage, for day 2, I got the idea to sit down in one of the gutters in order for me to sit and stay while watching the parade. Its also a good vantage point since no one is infront of me.
If you plan to visit the Panagbenga, I suggest you sit at the gutter area or bring your own small chair.
