Never to miss out on the latest trends, a group of parade participants was inspired by popular computer game Plants vs. Zombies. (Photo by Shiela Coo / (http://bulatlat.com))





Street dancers and marching bands, wearing costumes made of or inspired by Benguet’s flowers, also joined the festivities.

Panagbenga in local Kankanaey (tribal people of Mountain Province and Benguet) dialect means “a time to bloom.” The Grand Float Parade is the country’s version of the Rose Parade in Pasadena, California. (Photo by Artemio A. Dumlao / (http://bulatlat.com))
