Spring Festival 2017 is an annual celebration in Baguio City, one of the most beautiful tourist destinations in the Philippines.
The essence of Spring Festival 2017 is to celebrate the beginning of the New Chinese Year, undoubtedly one of the most popular events for Filipinos of Chinese descent. Since this is largely a Chinese celebration, its occurrence does not coincide with the global New Year observed every first of January.

Visitors will often be seen partaking in the street performances, a feat that offers a glimpse into the local culture.
