There were twenty-three entries that particiapted in this year's Float Parade. Some of them, including my favorites, were already featured in my previous posts. And to wind-up with the Panagbenga Float Parade, here are eight more eye-catching entries of floats substantially made from flowers:

Purefoods Float : Kids Can Tell



Greenwich Float : Rock 'En Roll


SM Float : They have It All For You


Cebuana Lhuillier Float : Sila Ba Hari Ng Padala?


Jimm's Float : Coffee Anyone?


B-Meg Float : Even Mr. Baboy Had Fun


Surigao Float : Surfboards Galore


Magnolia Float : This Cow Will Soon Be In The Can


More on the Grand Street Parade on my next posts.

    Thanks, Lawstude! Only gonna be my second time sa Anawangin. The last time, wala sa aming may dala ng camera, isa lang ang may camera phone.

    Parang na-pressure naman ako, mag-expect ba ng feature?! Haha! Buti na lang, my mountaneer friends take good photos. Yung shots na lang nila ang ipo-post ko. haha!

  16. You sure do have a great vantage point. You were high up there! I wish I had the zeal to wake up earlier. haha! We couldn't find a nice spot anymore. It really pays to wake up early. Great shots!!! On your previous post, I love the clown juggling... galing! I obviously didn't catch that anymore.

  17. The floats are really colorful specially the float of Purefoods. I agree with most of the comments here that the flower parade can really rival those flower parade in other countries. The Baguio weather is really fit for that kasi if that will be held let say in Manila where the heat is unbearable, I am sure the flowers won't last that long.

  18. Masyado na talagang commercialized and festival hano? Pero come to think of it, sino ba naman ang mag spend ng fortunes just to built flower floats kung wala naman sila mapapala di ba? So these corporation and commercial entities really make use of these festivals para naman mapromote products nila. Win-win situation yun para sa lahat.

  22. Nice! Hmm, majority nga product endorsements. Sabagay, pag parade maraming tao, so effective din yun in terms of making people see your products...
