Bacolod City’s Masskara Festival

Bacolod City’s Masskara Festival

Masskara Festival - It’s been a long time since I joined Tuesday Travels and today, I am so fortunate enough that I would be able to join. Thank God!
Anyway, for this merry month of October, the theme is about festivals. You can share the festivals you have been to or festivals you might want to go in the future. So for me, I am featuring the Masskara Festival of Bacolod City. The Masskara Festival is held every October with a lot of upbeat street dancing, food, drinks and partying. So that means, just this weekend, it was their highlights of all their festivities.

Since I lived in Bacolod City for almost seven years, I was fortunate enough to experience the Masskara Festival. My first Masskara Festival experience was last October 2005. It was my first time to witness the most glamorous and colorful street dancing parade. Since I grew up in Cagayan de Oro City, I only experienced the ordinary fiesta parade in which I also participated but with the Masskara Festival, everything was brand new!
I was so amazed with the dancers and how colorful their costumes are. Aside from the fact that the dancers were not only adults, there were also children who danced and wore costumes.

Most fiestas I have attended in Mindanao is about families preparing food for visitors to eat, but in Bacolod City, people gather at the public plaza. They eat, drink and party all night. They tend to enjoy the open air while music is being played in every corner. You can see people dancing at the streets.
If life would give me a chance to attend another Masskara Festival again, I would not hesitate to go and experience it again!
