  5. What’s the difference between the fluvial float parade and the grand float parade? i wanna witness panagbengga and see the float parade. Is it going to be rainy during february? thanks! 🙂

    1. The fluvial parade is being held at the Burnham lake while the grand float parade held at Baguio City’s main road, i.e. session and harrison road.

    1. According to my experiences for the past years the grand float parades usually starts at around 7:00a.m. – 8:00 a.m. i will however update the site for any changes in schedule. So please check back here from time to time.
