Masskara Festival Philippines 2016

Masskara Festival is the annual celebration in the city of Bacolod in Negros Island in the Philippines. The city has held this festival every October for the past 30 years and now is without doubt one of the most attended festivals in the country. And for a country that has a festival in almost all cities for as old as hundreds of years, Masskara Festival is one success story when it comes to promotion to tourists both local and international.

The word "masskara" means "mask" and this explains the festival's distinct characteristic - dancers wearing smiling masks adorned with beads and other ornaments. Philippine festivals would be nothing if it does not involve street dancing and partying and the festival's highlight is its street dancing that happens on a weekend closest to October 19 which is the foundation day of the town.
