On-going BFF activities

BAGUIO CITY – Majority of this year’s Panagbenga activities are focused on the theme, “The Environment and Community in Harmony;” which started with the distribution of pine tree seedlings to participants during the opening parade. Recipients of the pine tree seedlings are expected to plant these in their neighborhood for the benefit of the environment; and the public.

Add to these are health-oriented, cultural and sports activities this Sunday, Feb. 13; the Arnis de Mano Tournament at Malcolm Square, simultaneous with Prolife’s symposium/seminar for the youth, dubbed as “Choices,” at the Baguio Convention Center; and a cultural presentation at the SM events center.

All these come after yesterday’s comebacking activity: the Let A Thousand Flowers Bloom painting contest at the Melvin Jones. Participated in by individuals, family members, and the community as a whole, the activity shows creative artistry as embossed on canvas. As in the past years, the activity’s paintings shall be “curtain-raisers” during the grand streetdancing parade on Feb. 26.

The Baguio Flower Festival on its 16th year also features the Fluvial Float Parade and Pre-Valentine Entertainment at the Lake, today at the man-made lake, Burnham Park.

Still on-going until March 6 are the Market Encounter and Landscaping Exhibit at the Jose Abad Santos Drive, Burnham Park, where local products and landscapes may be seen; and Barangay beautification and landscaping contest, environmentally motivated and linked with the city’s Alay Sa Kalinisan. Judges have been going around the barangays since last week for a look at their gardens and environs.

For fitness and self-defense enthusiasts, a mixed martial arts event shall be featured at the Baguio Convention Center next Saturday, Feb. 19; while on Sunday afternoon, Feb. 20, the 8th Baguio Cheerleading Championships for elementary and high school categories go on at the University of Baguio Gym. Colleges, government and private technical schools, and even out-of-town schools have signified their intentions of joining the pep squad contest.

The Philippine International Arts Festival (PIAF) 2011 shall also have their Ipitik festival, a wine-brewing and tasting activity which culminates with the choosing of the best wine locally brewed for at least 21 days. The opening and judging of said products shall be on Feb. 20; at the Rose Garden, Burnham Park; which also signals the start of the wood-carving contest and Cinemarehiyon.

Other activities are slated in other venues, before the grand streetdancing and float parades, on Feb. 26 and 27.
