Bacolod City's MassKara 2012 Festival: Electric MassKara Parade

Saturday, November 10, 2012



The Electric MassKara is an annual street parade during the MassKara Festival in Bacolod City, where paraders all clad in colorful costumes and beautifully-adorned masks light up and dance to the beat of the drums along the Tourism Strip in Lacson Street for two consecutive nights. With the theme, “Pagkilita-ay,Pakita-ay” ("We meet and show off."), it showcased how Bacolod and its people have fun — the Mardi Gras kind of  way, that is.

If you're looking for authentic Ilonggo restaurants in Bacolod City, try switching your diet from the usual piyaya and napoleones of Bacolod to fresh seafood at the old Pala-Pala Market, located in San Juan Street corner North Capitol Road. It's where handsome and humble billionaires, like me, gather and eat on a budget. Really.
