BFF 2011 BLISTT-friendly - mayor

BAGUIO CITY – Mayor Mauricio Domogan is looking forward to a Baguio Flower Festival synchronized with activities in neighboring areas including La Trinidad, this coming February.

The mayor made the pronouncement during the Panagbenga press conference last Wednesday at the Panagbenga Park along Camp John Hay gate, saying that good neighbors supplement and complement each other.

Tourists could always arrange a visit to the valley which produces most of the blooms used in the flower festival as admitted during the press conference, the mayor said. Some of the products of neighboring towns, as with the earlier staging of the flower festival, may also be seen during the Market Encounter; and Session road in Bloom.

Accordingly, a Panagbenga marathon is being considered from Baguio City to La Trinidad or vice-versa, which the mayor said may include the municipality of Tublay. This would strengthen the BLISTT (Baguio-La Trinidad-Itogon-Sablan-Tuba-Tublay) concept, which has long been considered and consistently pushed by the city’s top executive.

The 16th staging of Panagbenga has the theme, “The Environment and Community in Harmony,” which would serve well for the city as we work with the neighboring areas, the mayor said.

The mayor emphasized that the celebration of the flower festival is fourfold: thanksgiving to the Almighty for blessings bestowed; the establishment of cultural identity; the sustenance of the tourism industry in the region; and unification and celebration of regional development.

Again, the mayor invited the general public to the Baguio Flower Festival which would start the celebration with the inauguration of the Panagbenga park on February 1 before the elementary division elimination parade.

Traditional activities would go on during the following dates: Grand opening parade from Panangbenga park to Athletic Bowl, Feb. 1; Market Encounter and Landscaping exhibit at the Jose Abad Santos Drive, Burnham Park, Feb. 1 to March 6; Barangay Beautification and Landscaping Contest, Feb. 1 to March 6; Flower Tee Open Golf Tournament at the Baguio Country Club, Feb. 3;  at  Let A Thousand Flowers Bloom at Melvin Jones, Feb. 12; Pre-Valentine Event and Fluvial Float Parade at the Burnham Lake, Feb. 13; Grand Street Parade, from Session road to Athletic Bowl, Feb. 26; Grand Float Parade, Feb. 27; Session Road in Bloom, Feb. 28 to March 6; Pony Boys’ Day at the Athletic Bowl, March 2; and Grand Closing Ceremony at the Athletic Bowl while the Fireworks Display shall be done around the city on March 6, Sunday. .

Interested individuals as to additional flower festival activities could inquire from the Panagbenga Secretariat Office at the BCVB bldg., Burnham Park, tel. no.
