Baguio City Mayor Mauricio Domogan said city officials and Baguio Flower Festival organizers may designate the Panagbenga cultural showdown as one of the annual festival’s major events in the future.
The Baguio politiko said the Panagbenga cultural showdown was a major crowd drawer.
Domogan said he wants the Panagbenga cultural showdown to remain open to all cultural groups from all over the country.
“We will surely make the Panagbenga cultural showdown one of the major highlights of the flower festival in the coming years so that our efforts to help in empowering our constituents to preserve and protect their rich culture and traditions will be enhanced for the benefit of the present and future generations of inhabitants of the city,” he said.
“We have to effectively and efficiently transfer to our youth the rich culture and tradition that we were able to inherit from our forefathers,” Domogan added.
