Submitted by on September 17, 2011 – 9:25 pmNo Comment

The 32nd MASSKARA Festival of Bacolod was launched last September 2, 2011; for those who missed the launching, no need to worry because the climax is still to come this October. At the end of this article, you can find the updated schedule of MassKara Festival this year.


With its theme “Celebrating the New icons of Bacolod”, this year’s MassKara aims to present the new face of Bacolod with its string of new icons – Bacolod City Government Center, Pope John Paul II Tower, East Block, The Chalet of L’Fisher Hotel, SM City Bacolod, Planta Hotel, Forest Park, Art District and others. These new icons are represented at the current logo of the festival.

It is important to note that Bacolod City is one of the fastest growing metropolis in the country today, and this year’s festival aims to showcase how far the Negrenses worked hard for their city’s prosperity.
