La Trinidad Strawberry Festival 2015 Schedule And Calendar Of Events

Strawberries will once again take center stage this coming month of March as the town of La Trinidad in Benguet stages yet another edition of the annual and always-colorful Strawberry Festival. This year's theme is "A colorful gathering and merry-making." In the local vernacular, this translates to a colorful "panaspulan tan pandadsahan".

The festivities will officially commence on the second day of March with the opening of the Agro-Industrial Trade Fair at the La Trinidad public market grounds. The schedule of activities which was recently unveiled during a press conference held by the town on February 16 shows a thicker calendar compared to past editions of the festival. Check out the complete and official calendar of events below. (Source: The Eternal Student)
