Perhaps Germany is best renowned for its Oktoberfest yet Bacolod is definitely fully engaged in Ocotober as well with its Masskara Festival. That is the official link for the Masskara Fiesta or Festival which runs from October 1 through the 19th this year. I have not witnessed this Festival yet but am willing to put you in contact with any hotels or tour guides should you decide to travel here. This could also provide a tremendous opportunity for some people here in Bacolod who are willing to help out!
I have attached two photos taken here in Bacolod to this report. San Sebastian Cathedral is shot in the 2nd photo near City Plaza.
To Your Success.
Update, Sept. 7, 2011: 2011 Masskara Queen candidates schedule out!
