Gong Xi Fa Cai!
Baguio City welcomes the Year of the Fire Rooster as the New Year’s Eve parade was held yesterday, January 27, 2017. Personalities as well as local and national brands graced the occasion. Flocks of people witnessed the event and had fun watching (not to mention, got some goodies the parade participants threw at them [which it seems to be a symbol of good luck for the coming year]). We’re sorry for the bracket within the bracket.

I was only limited to where I was but it was a fair good vantage point for me.
Here are the other photos I took during the parade, in no particular order.
People from Baguio know what this is. We usually see it at 50s Diner.

Messing with her is not on my list.
Right after the parade, I rushed to Session Road. I witnessed the Writings on the Road.
Happy Lunar New Year!
Session Road in Bloom immediately follows after the float parade. It is when Session Road will be closed to vehicles and stalls are put up. This is a great opportunity for business owners all around the Philippines to showcase their local products and services.
The Market Encounter is in Burnham Park along Lake Drive. The only difference between Session Road in Bloom and Market Encounter is that the latter can take place earlier.
Only in the month of February when the three main roads within Baguio’s central business district are closed. Session Road in Bloom on Session Road, Market Encounter on Lake Drive, and one lane along Harrison Road for the Night Market. The Night Market in Harrison Road happens daily, which starts at 9:00 PM.
And where there are cars, there are these amazing, pretty ladies. We felt so lucky. Well, who won’t?

Later in the evening, the fireworks display concluded the Panagbenga Festival. I struggled to get a location with good vantage point. This is the make-the-most-of-what-I-have kind of shot.
Personally, I associate the Panagbenga Festival with beauty. Here are some shots during the 6th of March.
