IN BACOLOD, BEST PARTY THIS SIDE OF THE WORLD


A hybrid of Hunger Games and Amazing Race. This best explains my traveling in and out of Bacolod City for the Masskara Festival 2015 over the weekend. All because I live for stupid.

Pure luck pulled me through this challenge, but as with any excruciating experience, a growth spurt follows. As a traveler, I am incredibly proud of myself for making it, enjoying Masskara Festival through it all, and not dying.

The details of this harrowing tale I will feed you in another post. The point is Masskara Festival is still awesome despite the massacre that is coming in and going out of the island.





All the colors from the shit spectrum of the unicorn are here. It is insane how grand this festival is. The costumes, the colors, the vibe – the people of Bacolod has something beyond fantastic going on for them.

If you get the chance, visit Bacolod next year for Masskara 2016. This is one party that lines up with the best of the world, I shit you not.

  1. Mascara in both Portuguese and Spanish means mask, so im assuming that it was Masskara maybe stands for? Fact of the matter is if something appeared in my house with one of those masks on, even during day time, i think i would have a heart attack! Looks like an awesome party though 😀 will keep that in mind for when I return to the Philippines

    1. it is a pun on masks but historically, masskara means a multitude of faces. the first festival was in 1980, created to uplift the people suffering from an economic crisis, plus a sea tragedy. it is an awesome party annually held on the weekend closest to october 19.

  2. I love all of these pictures, and I want to go, but at the same time I feel as though I would be terrified of everyone being masked. Sounds like the setup for some murder mystery.
