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