Bacolod Masskara Festival
January 22, 2016
Bacolod City is one of the best destinations in the Philippines. Great food, peaceful and serene community, easy access to basic needs, hospitable people — Bacolod is all these and more. Known for being a relatively friendly city, it bears the nickname “City of Smiles.”
Bacolod is the capital, and the largest highly urbanized mid-size city of the province of Negros Occidental, and is the “Sugar Bowl” of the Philippines.
Bacolod City is branded for its MassKara Festival, held every third weekend of October. The festival is highlighted with food and delicacies, and merry-making with the famous MassKara street-dance competition, where revelers from all walks of life, both local and foreign, trip to the streets to see the colorful masked dancers rave to the infectious rhythm of Latin-inspired dance music.
