Panagbenga Festival is a month long annual flower festival occurring in Baguio during the month of February. The term means "season of blooming". The festival is held during the month of February and was created as a tribute to the city's flowers and as a way to rise up from the devastation of the 1990 earthquake. The festival includes floats that are decorated with flowers and also includes street dancing, presented by dancers clad in flower inspired costumes, with a nod to the Bendian, an Ibaloi dance of celebration that came from the Cordillera region. The festival has also helped the younger generation of indigenous people to rediscover their culture's traditions.
