The festival begins with street dancing, participated by students and youths from all of the town’s barangays, clad in ornamental, plant-inspired costumes. On the opening day of the festival, bonsai exhibitions and competitions can be seen, where visitors can even buy bargain-priced house ornaments, vegetables, and decorations at trade fairs.
The highlight of the festival comes with the float parade, which features the winning muse from the beauty pageant riding around on her decorated platform. Tourists are often amazed by the creativity of local artists who make use of flowers to create fantastic floats and huge, insect-like creatures in the parade.
This joyous display of celebration is organized in honor of Saint Ildephonsus, Guiguinto’s patron saint. The festival has become a vibrant highlight for the town, and is a much-awaited annual event for both tourists and locals alike.
