Bacolod City Mayor Evelio Leonardia announced that 2016 MassKara Festival will be held from October 1 to 23. Wow! 23 days of celebration is a bang. It is the longest festival celebration so far. As we all know the MassKara Festival is one of the most anticipated festival by the locals and also the foreigner’s. I myself is extremely excited to witness once again the renowned festival.
MassKara Festival Bacolod
The festival is celebrated every third week of October. The streets were filled with colorful costumes and smiling mask that commemorate the great tragedy that causes lives of hundred negrense. But, for better understanding about the festival history, you can check my article here.
Furthermore, the Silver MassKara Committee identified three festival sites – the Bacolod Public Plaza, Bacolod City Government Center, and the Tourism Strip at Lacson Street. Last 2 years ago the arena competition were held at the Pagla- um Sports Complex. But the committee decide to bring it back to the public plaza.
For first timer, take note of the festival sites so you would not found yourself being lost. Although sometimes being lost is little bit fun and lead to great things and great discovery right?. There are a lot of things you can discover in the City of Smile.
The 2016 MassKara Festival is celebrating its 37th year with its theme: Back on Track will kick off on the first day of October. The official music is out already featuring hiligaynon music that was used in the festival long time ago. Also the official schedule of events already announced by the committee in their Facebook Page.
