One of our most valuable assets is our smile that we use to express our ideas, feelings, and affection for one another, but ever since the pandemic, our ability to showcase our beautiful smiles has been taken away because face masks have become mandatory to slow down the spread of the virus. 

With the decreasing reports of COVID cases, many businesses and festivals are expected to return. Now, if you’re looking for a place to distress and have your smile back, pack your things, let’s take a trip and experience the MassKara Festival in the City of Smiles, Bacolod.

One of the biggest events in the Philippines is the MassKara Festival in Bacolod City. Unbelievably, the celebration has allowed local and foreign tourists to enjoy themselves, drink, and party on the streets of Bacolod for over 40 years now.

The city’s internationally known festival is significant this year since it will be the first celebration since the Covid-19 pandemic was announced more than two years ago. MassKara Festival is held every fourth Sunday of October, and after two years, the streets of Bacolod will again celebrate and rejoice. 

What to look forward to in MassKara Festival 2022

Street Dances

The street dance competition is one of the MassKara Festival’s primary draws. The performers are skilled dancers, and the participants don outrageous traditional garb and masks during the day. 

At night, dancers dressed in flamboyant, colorful, and neon lights roam the streets of Bacolod and perform. Participants in parades often dress in elaborate costumes.

Street Parties

Aside from the Dance competition, street dances are one of the main attractions of the MassKara Festival, and the largest street party is Masskaraland. It is open for everyone to have fun and enjoy. You can dance from sunrise until sunset in the gigantic party venue at Lacson street.

The best part about Masskaraland is that it is accessible to the public. Masskaraland started in 2013, and since then, people have been partying in Lacson Tourism Strip from 4 pm until sunrise for two nights every MassKara Festival. If you are looking for a place to rave and get hyped, Masskaraland will surely bring out the party animal in you. 

Beauty pageants 

The MassKara Queen pageant is a beauty pageant held every MassKara Festival since 1981. Bacolod may be The City of Smiles, but people don’t know that there are many beautiful women in the city. During this pageant, you will see these ladies battle for the crown wearing their brightest and flashiest attire. 

On the other hand, Bacolodnon men have the chance to flaunt their chiseled physiques at the Mr. Bacolod 2022 bodybuilding and fitness competition. There are three categories in this year’s contest which are men’s bodybuilding, men’s physique, and men’s fit model. 

Masskara Cup Drag Fest

The Bacolod City government is taking MassKara Festival to the next level this year, especially for race enthusiasts and adrenaline junkies. This year’s MassKara Festival features the MassKara Cup Drag Fest, an autosport event divided into three categories; drag racing, cross kart, and autocross. 

Aside from the drag fest, this year’s MassKara Fest will also have a BMX Competition for riders and cyclists in Bacolod. Both of these events are the brainchild of Bacolod City Mayor Albee Benitez.
