Baguio City (CNN Philippines) — Competitors have started building floral floats for the Grand Float Parade of the Panagbenga Festival, also known as the Baguio Flower Festival.

One of the most anticipated events during the month-long festival, the parade on Sunday (February 28) will feature floats that make use of flowers locally grown in Baguio.

According to organizers, 24 colorful floats are expected at this year’s parade — eight in the Small Float category and 16 in the Big Float category.

Several competitors have already started working on their designs since Monday. Most have yet to fill their floats with flowers in order to avoid wilting before the showdown begins.

Not all floats joining the parade will be part of the competition.

Floats from the City Government of Baguio, the Baguio Country Club, and SM Baguio will be considered non-competing entries, since all three have already reached “Hall of Famer” status.

Spectators must also watch out for “the smallest jeepney in the world,” Jeepito, another non-competing entry which is part of the Small Float showcase.

The parade will run from Upper Session Road going to Magsaysay Avenue, turning towards the Melvin Jones Football Fields where the floats will be displayed for public viewing.
