Panagbenga 2009 Photos and Videos

Saturday, February 28, 2009

Check this out. I'm seeing photos and videos of the street dancing competitions for Baguio City's Panagbenga 2009 Festival in the Inquirer.net VDO webpage. More than 20 schools participated in the parade, and Baguio played host to 300,000 visitors during the week. The float competition starts March 1. The first float to roll down Session Road will be that of the Baguio Country Club (BCC). The cost for this massive float alone is a staggering P320,000 - add this to the P170,000 bill for the accompanying dancers and their costumes and you have the BCC spending almost half a million pesos for this year's celebration!

Thanks for sharing the video link. Do you know who won in the street dancing?

Honizi, the street dancing was won by the Mapandan High School. The school had performers with straw skirts as roots of the “pandan” plant, held up poles with pandan-like leaves and formed sunflowers and other flowers with their movements.
