Blended conduct of 2021 Panagbenga festival eyed
Xổ số 24 giờ3 December 2020 – Residents and visitors who are longing for the conduct of crowd-drawing events in the city next year will now have a chance to witness the events of the 2021 edition of the Panagbenga that might be done through blended mode.
Xổ số 24 giờSupervising tourism Operations Officer Engr. |Aloysius C. Mapalo reported that the recent conduct of the Ibagiw Creative Arts festival serves as a benchmark for the future staging of similar crowd-drawing events in the city, like the upcoming Panagbenga by February next year.
Xổ số 24 giờHe admitted that while there is no available vaccine yet to contain the spread of the dreaded Corona Virus Disease (COVID) 2019, there will be limitations in the conduct of crowd drawing events with a mixture of virtual and face-to-face gatherings while adhering to the strict implementation of the prescribed health and safety protocols.
The city tourism officer disclosed the local government will closely coordinate with the Baguio Flower Festival Foundation, Inc. (BFFFI) to get their insights on how to conduct next year’s activities for the 26th edition of the Panagbenga festival, the city’s major crowd-drawing event.
Xổ số 24 giờEarlier, the city and the BFFFI decided to cancel the various government-supported and community-led events for the 25th edition of the Panagbenga last February after the threat posed by the dreaded Corona Virus Disease (COVID) 2019 started to be realized in some parts of the country.
Mapalo explained the blended conduct of the Panagbenga events is part of the efforts of the city government to gradually and safely bring back the vibrance of the local economy that suffered drastically due community quarantine measures to contain the spread of the virus over the past eight months.
Xổ số 24 giờAccording to him, the recent staging of the Ibagiw Creative Arts festival last November showed some feasible approaches on the staging of crowd-drawing events that will not generate too many individuals in a face-to-face setting but can reach people worldwide through live streaming, thus, the same can be replicated in some of the events of the Panagbenga once the organizers agree to such proposed blended conduct of the festival next year to help in reviving the local tourism industry.
Xổ số 24 giờPanagbenga is the only festival in the country that was included in the elite list of the International Festivals and Events Association being one of the well organized crowd drawing events.
Xổ số 24 giờThe annual conduct of the Panagbenga is spearheaded by the BFFFI where the lined up activities usually run from February 1 up to the first week of March that encompass the traditional activities complimented by numerous private and community-led festivities that entice foreign and domestic visitors to visit the city right at the start of the year.
Xổ số 24 giờThe festival was named Panagbenga, the Kankanaey term for blossoming, since the same is being staged during the time of the blossoming of flowers in the nearby Benguet areas. - Dexter A. See
