Festival in Bacolod
What started as "just a new activity" to spice up an otherwisese routine civic-military parade, awarding ceremonies and a literary-musical program for a city charter anniversary, Bacolod City's MassKara Festival is now 3 years short of its third decade and has already become of the entries of the Philippines to the global tourism community.
Festival in Bacolod




Every year, in the month of October, the “City of Smiles,” Bacolod, gears up for the annual Masskara festival. Coined from the words “mass” meaning crowd and Spanish word “cara” meaning face, the Masskara is a celebration of the Negrenses’ indomitable spirit and triumph against adversities. Highlights of the event are the cultural shows, trade fairs, bazaars, sports competition which culminates in a Masskara Dance Parade which is participated by different groups of dancers in colorful costumes and wearing masks of different forms and designs. They all dance to a lively rhythm with coordination and ecstatic movements. A street party at Lacson Street is also held where people from all walks of life and from different classes of the city mix and bond together all in the spirit of fun, fun, fun. The Masskara festival climaxes at the weekend nearest to October 19th, which is the city’s Charter Day foundation.

Palacio Episcopal
One of the historical spots in Bacolod City, the Palacio was built in the 1890s and was the residence of Bishop Julian Gonzaga. At the rise of the Philippine revolution, many Spanish soldiers, civic leaders and officials found shelter in the walls of the Palacio.

Negros Museum
This was formerly the provincial capitol building but was abandoned after it fell into a state of disrepair. Because of its fine symmetry and proportion it was considered the most beautiful provincial capitol in the country. You can see and view artifacts related to the sugar industry of Negros here.

The Pottery Village
Is found in Bgy. Pahanocoy which is 7 kms. south of downtown Bacolod. Most products are made of clay and are often used for decorative purposes.

Provincial Capitol Park and Lagoon
This rectangular lagoon is located in front of the provincial capitol. The lagoon grounds serve as a recreational area for the Bacolod residents. The lagoon and park is accented in the south and north ends by a statue of a male water buffalo and a man, as well as a female water buffalo and a woman.

Barangay Virgen Chapel
Tthis chapel is found in Santa Clara Subdivision and it features a unique mosaic measuring 9 ft. x 21 ft. The mural is done on a collage made of 95,000 shells of different colors, shapes and sizes.

Pala-pala resembles
The concept of the Dampa in Manila where fresh shrimp, fish, crab and shells are bought and taken to the eatery one has chosen to cook the lot. The fresh sea catch is so irresistible and the cooking, simple but superb..

Manukan Country
Is probably the second symbol of Bacolod, it comes close to sugar, the number one industry in the province. You will find the original native chicken inasal in Manukan Country, a cluster of small eateries that come to life at nightfall. Regular clients flock to the inasal capital to enjoy their favorite chicken parts roasted to a delicious color and dipped in one’s favorite condiment. Delish!

Balay Negrense
Owned by the Gaston clan, it was acquired by the Negros Cultural Foundation with the help of the DOT and was partially restored. It houses century-old furniture and other cultural heritage of the province.

Lunch at Balaring
Balaring is a seaside barangay so one can guess that the specialty here is the fresh seafood. To reach this remote barangay, one can take the tricycles for P50 pesos. Oceans of sugarcane provide a refreshing scene on the way to Balaring.

The Ruins of Talisay
Is the remains of the once grand mansion of Don Mariano Ledesma Lacson. It was burned by the USAFFE forces to prevent the Japanese army from camping in it. It boasts of a dramatic transformation during nightfall.
