1. FRIENDLY ATMOSPHERE

3. NEGRENSE SPIRIT
All day, all night, street party till’ the sun will rise! 20 days of merry making, beer drinking, dining and street dancing. It’s a sea of vibrant colors, eclectic patterns, and huge smiles. And then of course, there’s the Masskara Queen – the girl with the most beautiful smile, epitomizing the spirit of the festival itself.
4. MOUTH-WATERING FOODS
Creativity and hospitality come in tow with Filipinos, qualities that also reflect on the way they prepare food. Aside from the Masskara Festival, a lot of tourists come for the food. But food and festival combined, anyone’s visit is going to be a blast. Bacolod City offers you lots of mouth-watering foods such as Calea’s Cakes & Pastries, Aida’s Manokan, and etc.
5. TAKE A PICTURE, IT WILL LAST LONGER
Perhaps this is the point where you are reminded to bring a camera with you. With the activities listed above, every single moment is worth a camera shot—yes, that might include food. And while it is good enough to bring a good memory of your visit, nothing could be better than looking back at a “captured” colourful memory of the Masskara Festival.
One more thing, if this is going to be your first time to join the festivities for the Masskara Festival, then be prepared for the best – and the worst! Most of the streets along the grand parades’ routes will be jam-packed with people from all walks of life, children and adults alike. Be prepared to deal with crowds – and to pick your way among the throng should you wish to leave your spot.
