It’s been a week since MassKara Festival but some of us still talk about it. Aside from the usual street dancing competition, which in my opinion gets more colorful every year, there were new events launched. Most notable was the Ipanema Drum Dance which really made Lacson St. the place to be on MassKara nights.
Of course, there was the customary coverage of the Skyscrapercity Bacolod of the MassKara Festival. We’re a mix bunch of engineers, nurses, seafarers,OFWs and entrepreneurs who are very passionate in promoting Bacolod and Negros Occidental.
This year, we hosted some guests from Skyscrapercity Cebu. Ilonggo and Cebuano together? You bet! And mind you, we didn’t scratch each other’s eyes. We had so much fun that some of us are planning to invade Cebu for the Sinulog festival next year.
My favorite moments during MassKara were those with kids. Yes, MassKara Festival is safe for your children even at night.
This little Darna was with one of the street dancers. She was so into it that you couldn’t see any shyness when she poses as Darna.
I call him the boy with a “split personality”. At such a young age he’s already showing signs, if you know what I mean. This isn’t really a bad thing considering his talent will be polished if he continues to join MassKara every year.
All eyes were on this chubby kid who sang and danced along with the band. Albeit he only uses a hairbrush as microphone, his performance level is comparable to those on stage.
Your MassKara experience is not complete without going to a party! The whole stretch of Lacson St. is full of partygoers and are the different bars in Bacolod. Bacoleños really know how to party!
Until next MassKara Festival!
