The Federation of Philippine Photographers Foundation (FPPF) declared this year’s Panagbenga Festival 2015 as one of its 4 On-The-Spot (OTS) contest this year, along with the Pulilan Kneeling Carabao Festival (Bulacan), Masskara Festival (Bacolod) and Kadayawan (Davao). It also coincides with the vacation of one of our photography friends in Baguio and he invited us to join him.
The highlight of this year’s Panagbenga was March 1 (Sunday) which was the Grand (Float) Parade. The day before that was the Street Dancing competition. Let me post some of my pictures of the Grand Parade. This is definitely a late post since it’s almost June but it is nice to see these pictures nevertheless.
Some of the celebrities I've seen in this year’s Panagbenga 2015 Celebrations are Asi Taulava, June Macasaet, Ogie Alcasid, Oyo Boy Sotto, Matet and Kristine Hermosa-Sotto.
Some of the companies that have a float are Jollibee, NLEX, Sprite, Department of Tourism, MLhuiller, among others. One of the most recognizable themes are from the movie “Epic” a.k.a. the Leafmen.
