  • MassKara: A dazzling movable rainbow

    Bacolod literally burst at the seams on the weekend closest to Oct. 19 - the city's Charter Day Anniversary - while thousands of guests from neighboring cities and towns, faraway provinces and distant islands, together with foreign visitors and balikbayan guests, excitedly converged at the City of Smiles, to be dazzled and experience in awe. In fabulous masks, street dancers made up of students from all levels of education and representatives from the various barangays, slowly inched their way down festive, crowded Lacson Street. They were witnessed by noisy, celebratory merry makers for the Grand Parades - all three of them on three succeeding days - that climaxed this year's MassKara Festival, the most anticipated annual event in the so-very-underrated-and-yet-so-much-to-offer tourist destination.
