Masskara is a cardinal symbol that depicts the many faces of life and the challenges it brings. It is a festival of thanksgiving for the bounty showered upon the Negrenses during the season of harvest. Animated street dancing highlights the celebration flocked in by thousands of spectators from all over the country.
Negrenses, Bacolodnons, Bacoleños or however you would like to call them, the name only means two things: they know what great food is and they always party like it is their last. The first time I went to North , one of the most sought-after clubs in Bacolod , I found the place had all the right vibrations needed to make a place the nest of all who seek for ultimate fun.
Every corner of the city flaunted the best of Bacolod , from their delicacies to their craft, their creativity and their contagious jovial disposition. Bacolod is known for places like bars and restaurants with new-fangled interiors that show the Bacolodnon's
passion for the arts. Café Breizh has a very impressive minimalist interior design that contrasts all the lively party that goes on in there. Simpler places like the Nana's Grill and LCC Manokan have a long list of delectable food. Breakfast at the Business Inn is definitely worth going back to and anything at Café Bob's is to-die-for.
In Bacolod City , three days is not enough with all the good places to visit. There were more places on my list but I wish I had more than 24 hours in my day. The Masskara Festival is an event you want to be a part of every year.
